I Don’t Have Time

Take a deep breath, then exhale relaxed, go to a place that allows you to see the bigger picture before saying you don’t have time. I know you are busy and probably really packed up, but the only one responsible for organizing your time is you and no one else. Yes, no matter what the big guy says and how comfortable it is to blame him, you are the one (un)organizing yourself.

There is nobody I talked to up to this moment, who didn’t tell me at least once he was able to win something, either it was the job or the personal life goal – out of lacking time. If there was an excuses’ manual, the “no time” section will be by far the most complex one.

Our luck is that we are actually able to achieve something as long as we set straight our priorities. You cannot say there is no time for the gym since you chose to watch the “Some Country Got Talent” show, ‘cause you are responsible for choosing the latter.

Creating some small, but annoyingly efficient habits will make you get whatever you wished for. I have written here before about how busy are you driving makes you, so busy you forget to fill the tank.

You don’t have to work 80 hours per week to achieve your goals (though sometimes you must do this as well), but set clearly the things you need to give up in order to make room for what matters to you.

Don’t waste your time with nonsense. Write down the important things you did yesterday and you’ll notice how many unimportant ones you actually spent your time with.

Try this timing exercise: choose a period of time (60, 90, 120 minutes) with clear objectives. You allotted the time, so no excuses with not having time, so it’s up to you to make the most of this time and don’t let others steal it from you. If you say you can’t fit 30 minutes (approximately 2%) for exercising every day, then your health is not a priority. You cannot convince me that taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking 20 floors during lunch are not feasible due to lack of time. The same applies to work – if you say you don’t have 10 minutes to organize your day, it means that it’s not a priority to you.

Revise all the activities you “must” perform and the most important thing to do right now is to stop complaining about the lack of time. At least you can admit to yourself that you didn’t want to allocate time and it wasn’t a priority.

Instead of saying “I didn’t have time to shower” try “I didn’t want to shower and it’s not my priority (not even for the sake of those around me) to be clean”.

I don’t think you don’t have time, you just didn’t set your priorities.

Good luck succeeding! If you have time, of course…
