"I Don't Have Time..."

By Arel Moodie

I realize whenever I tell myself "I just don't have the time" that's me performing at my lowest common denominator. If someone looks at my life, of course they'd agree with how busy I am so it's OK for me to pull the "I don't have time card" right?

"I don't have time" is code for "I don't care enough yet."

The most productive people I know have more on their plate than anyone else. They still get more done. An hour is not equal depending on how you use it.

It's people with barely any responsibilities who complain about no time. Yet there are tons of people who work full time jobs, run businesses, work out, volunteer and are present parents/family members.

There is a reason the saying "if you want something done, give it to a busy person" exists.

The truth is we make time for what we care about. Before I had my son, it's not like I had hours a day just sitting around I needed filled with a raising a child.

I made the time. I have been more productive as a parent and married man than I ever was a single man. Was it lack of time or lack of ambition?

I have been saying "I don't have enough time" too much in my life lately and my results have not been what I would expect. This. Changes. Now.
Maybe you also "don't have time for something," but that changes now.  Tell us at @ArtofLikability!
