Are you constantly telling yourself that you don’t have enough time?
- To exercise?
- To plan your week?
- To take care of your body?
- To see your friends?
- To be alone?
As you know, we all have the same number of hours in a week. Yet some of us accomplish all kinds of things that move us closer to our goals, and some of us don’t.
The answer may be to grab hold of the time you have and choose how you’d like to spend it. Don’t let life just flow around you unless you are perfectly happy with where it’s taking you.
Being a natural planner, I just love to stand back and look at my time and my ‘to do’ list and figure out how they can meet up.
But many people don’t want to think about what’s coming next. They hide behind the thoughts that they have no control of their life, of what’s coming, and of how they got where they are.
It also stands to reason that if you’re always thinking you don’t have enough time to do what you’d like to do, you’re probably also thinking that now isn’t a good time to get things done.
- Like lose weight.
- Like change jobs.
- Like really look at your relationships.
This is your wake up call.
Now IS the time.
Now is when to make changes, to make different choices, to take responsibility, to act.
I know that our time on earth is relatively short.
If we don’t stand back and get some big picture perspective, we can trick ourselves into believing that we have a huge future rolling out in front of us.
Maybe we do.
But maybe we don’t.
We just don’t know.
So stop putting off anything you care about.
Don’t worry about how hard something may be.
You can get help.
You can do research.
You can do a lot of things that would surprise you.
But seize the moment.
You have time right now.
