Making Time

It’s not always easy to find the time to do the things we really want to do. But there’s nothing to find. You know where the time is. We only have 24 hours in a day. Hopefully 8-9 of those hours are blocked off each night for sleeping. If they’re not, make time for that. So that leaves 15-16 hours of the day for living. That’s a lot of time.

A regular 9-5 job eats up 8 of those hours plus commute time. But even with a commute you still have 3-5 hours left over. It’s easier to make excuses: I’m tired; I don’t feel like doing (insert the thing you should be doing or really want to be doing); I have so many other things I need to do. We all do it. None of us are immune from our own excuses. But when you think about it, you have 5, 10, or 20 minutes in your day; you just have to make that block of time a priority.

It may mean forcing yourself to do that one thing at a certain time every day for a specific block of time; and some days you’ll need to force yourself to ensure that you stay consistent. But the consistency will make it a habit, and habits are just automatic behavior.

You have the time. Stop trying to find it and start making it.
