I hear this a lot from people, apparently nobody has time for “stuff” anymore. Well, sorry guys, I call bullshit. Time is clearly a prized possession and is probably the most valuable resource that we have. I’m the CMO of a startup, I’m the chief relationship and communications officer for Hirank, I write on my blog, I’m a contributing writer on bublicious, and I still have time to go the gym, play my guitar, and have fun. I’m not writing this to gloat. I’m writing this to say that you probably DO have time but you’re just not using it to do the things you should be doing.
Spend 1 hour less playing that PS3 and start that blog you’ve been wanting to get up. Instead of waking up at 8am try waking up at 7. Spend less time looking at those youtube videos that take up so much of your time. Now, I know that everyone is different and some of you have families/ 2 jobs etc. But most of the people I talk to DO have time, but they waste it.
This post is meant to be a little kick in the ass for all of you who are wanting to do something but complain about time. It’s tough to get out of the habit of killing time and I know that when you get off of work or when you have free time all you want to do is relax. Truth be told, when you do something you love you don’t really feel like you’re working. I have interacted with many of my readers and I know how smart and capable you folks are. I can tell from your comments, emails, twitter messages, etc.
You guys don’t give yourself enough credit for your capabilities and abilities and you have to stop that. You Do have the time and you DO have the brains to get your stuff done.
Essentially you have two choices; you can bitch about how you don’t have time to do something or you can suck it up and do what you have to do to get your stuff done.
what’s your choice? I would be glad to help you so let me know if you have any questions or want my advice/opinion.
thanks for reading
