The most often excuse I hear about why someone can’t achieve a goal is “I don’t have time.”
Is this the real problem or is there something deeper? Often, we don’t have time because we’re wasting time or our priorities are out alignment.
If I could offer you one of two choices, which would you choose?
1) Work 60 hours per week or more so you can afford to live in an expensive house you rarely use, a really expensive car, the best name brand clothes BUT ……have very little time to exercise, plan, prepare, and enjoy meals, enjoy a hobby, volunteer, or spend quality time with family and friends, or….
2) Work 40 hours per week or less at a place close to home, live in a simple smaller house, drive a used but comfortable car, and wear tailored but inexpensive classic clothes AND……have plenty of time to exercise, plan, prepare, and enjoy meals, volunteer, pick up a hobby, and spend quality time with family and friends.
The problem is not that we don’t have time. It’s that we’re playing the wrong game, one we didn’t sign up for, and one we usually aren’t even aware we’re playing.
We all have the same amount of time. The question is what are you going to do with it?
