Too many times I have heard and used this line in life.
I don’t have time…..
It’s a phrase that I think we do not really consider to break down and think about. Well, maybe that’s because we do things very flippantly lately.
I was really letting it whirl around and settle to understand why we would say that statement. We all get 24 hours, about 16 hours of awake time, and we all get to manage and allot that hours, minutes and seconds to whatever we deem important to us.
And that is the crux of it all is it not? What is important to you, because that is what you will spend your time doing.
Now everybody needs to eat, and lo and behold we never have that excuse, saying we don’t have time to eat………………..
At least if you are a healthy individual. And we Shower or wash ourselves, we don’t use the excuse “we don’t have the time to do that….”
I am not saying that we can do everything, not possible, but you cannot say “I don’t have time”. You do, everyone has the time to do everything they need to do. What we really saying is, right now, that is not a priority to me. Believe me, if something is important to you, you make time available.
And what seems to me to be the trend is that it really is all in our heads. Because we are poor managers of our time, we simply reason that there is not enough time in the day. Maybe we not meant to do so much in one day. Maybe we not meant to be running a race trying to get ahead.
And lastly remember this saying…. No one on their death bed has ever said ” I wish I spent more time at the office…..”
