- Set your priorities and take full responsibility for your life.
How often do we hear from someone “sorry, I cannot go with you/participate in this event/go for a walk, because I don’t have time”? Or how often do we turn down some offers by this reason? Are we really that busy that we must refuse to so many things?
I personally don’t think so, and there was one experiment which can prove it. In this experiment was involved one business lady who has several children, a husband, friends, and her own business, of course. This is the person who defiantly really busy, right? She was asked to record every hour of her life - what she did during that time. And at the beginning of the week, she was asked if she had 2 hours for two salsa lessons on this week, make a guess what did she replied? – she had no time. A week later, when she showed the diary where wrote down how she spent all of her time, it turned out she had a leaky faucet. A calling to a plumber, the work itself and cleaning home after a small flood – took 7 hours of her week in total!
What does it mean? It means we should set priorities take responsibility for our life. When we are saying there is no time, it means someone is controlling our time and we can do nothing to it. But what is exact meaning of “I don’t have time”? it means “It is not one of my priorities, and I don’t want to spend time on it”. Can you feel the difference? Be brave while refusing to some offer and say that you are sorry, nut now you have another thing which should be done first. You will start to feel that YOU are controlling your life, and just YOU are deciding how to spend your time.
