There is always enough time

Do you believe:

  • That tomorrow will be just like today; that there will be no changes? That all of the same opportunities, people, thoughts, and ideas will still be available?
  • That there will always be tomorrow to get done what you didn’t get done today?
  • You don’t have enough time to actually accomplish even the smallest minute step toward whatever you need to do?
  • Time actually stands in your way?

Hogwash! If exercise is what you want to accomplish, there’s nothing that stands in your way from doing one push-up, one sit-up, or one squat. How about writing a novel? You could start by writing one line every day. Learning a new language? Learn one word a week. How about learning the harmonica, one note at a time? We leverage lack of time as our justification because we think most people will understand and not question it. We are not most people! We have time. How we choose to spend it is the question.

We’ll bet you spend it on the things that are important to you.   Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. It is up to us to control our time. To realize that you actually have the time, but you chose to spend it elsewhere is really important. Period. End of story!

Obviously, you need to know where your time goes so you can gain control over it. You need to control what you spend your time on and why. (We suggest spending it making your dreams come true.) We recommend that you do the following exercise at least once a month to remind yourself of where your time goes. It is important that you convert this excuse from no time to show time.   In every week you have 7 days, 24 hours in a day, and 60 minutes in each hour – giving you a total of 10,080 minutes. Attempt to find each and every one of those precious moments.

You may be surprised by where your time goes.
