How many times have you said or heard someone say “I don’t have the time”? I’m guilty of saying the same thing. The thing is, if you don’t take or carve out the time to do a task that needs to be done, it will probably never get done. Put the task on your calendar and/or write it down on your “To Do” list. I tell my clients all the time that we only have so many hours in a day to do the things that we need or want to do so we have to prioritize. Are you putting too much on your plate? Are your kids involved in too many activities? Ask yourself what’s really important to you & your family. Look for ways to simplify your life.
The holidays are around the corner along with the stress and hustle & bustle that comes with it. Start planning from now instead of waiting until the last minute. If you have family coming to visit for the holidays & your guest bedroom is a disaster, dedicate at least a couple of hours once a week (more hours if time allows) starting now to get the guest bedroom ready.
So the next time you say “I don’t have the time”, ask yourself “Why don’t I have the time?” & “How can I find the time?” and then dedicate the time to accomplish whatever it is that you want to do.
