The Manual #21 - Make Time
I just don’t have the time.
This is something I hear a lot from people and it’s something I sometimes tell myself. I realise I have to snap out of it.
For example going to the gym. If you’ve never been into fitness before it can be hard to figure out where to fit it in your day. It can also be something that’s not fun at the beginning, making it even more off putting. But there is no other way to speed up the process of getting into shape — it’s something that requires commitment of your own time. Even if you’re a billionaire, you still need to commit the time.
Now I hate the phrase “we have the same 24 hours”. This is a lie that many people like to say. Someone like Elon Musk and you, do not have the same 24 hours. Elon Musk can outsource nearly everything, he’ll have multiple assistants and has enough money to fix any problem. Not everyone has that luxury.
You have to realise that if you want something to fit in to your daily life or weekly schedule, you have to make the time. That will most likely mean reducing time on another activity that may not bring as much value in your life.
When you want something enough, you’ll make time for it.
