“I don’t have time to do that” is a common excuse we hear from people (including ourselves) when faced with certain tasks or responsibilities. We do it often when we have no interest in doing an activity. In other times though, even if we want to do something we feel like we don’t have time for it. We yearn for extra time in the day as we feel like 24 hours is not enough.
In previous articles we discussed the Consistency Beats Intensity philosophy and of ways where we can improve our lives by doing small things consistently. Perhaps the main argument against these strategies is the (perceived) lack of time. This argument is weak, however, as all people have the same time per day allotted to them. Can you see within your immediate social circle people who are more successful or more productive than you? If yes, then you know that it is possible to also attain the same level of productivity as them since all of us have the same amount of time given daily, weekly, or monthly.
