There is Always Enough Time

Why is it that we often feel like there is never enough time in the day to complete all the tasks we think we need to do? One of the top excuses people make for not completing a goal is that they ‘couldn’t find the time’.

 

We are all given the same amount of time in every day, so why is it that some people accomplish so much while others seem to accomplish very little?

The answer is in priorities. The most successful people know how to prioritize the important stuff and eliminate time wasters. I know that I spend hours on end thinking about and trying to decide which task to do next. If I just picked a task and then went on to the next one I would probably be able to complete a lot more in my day. Another thing I waste time on is playing computer games. Computer games are highly addictive and we love the rush we feel when we level up. Think about if instead of playing computer games you took a class or pursued your passion.

To be honest, I don’t even enjoy playing computer games much anymore, even though I still am addicted to a few. When I play it is not because I’m enjoying it all that much, what I am really doing is avoiding the things I should be working on instead. What I love most about playing computer games is the sense of accomplishment. I level up easily and constantly in the games and it is very easily measurable. In real life it is much harder to see progress. We can go days, weeks, months or maybe even years without seeing real gains. It is difficult to stick to something when you can’t measure and see results right away.

But it all comes back to priorities. What is most important to you? Would you rather stick your kid in front of a movie and play on your smartphone or would you rather be reading them a book? Would you rather look at what everyone else is doing on Facebook or go out and live your life?

What are your top three priorities in life right now? What are the three things you spend the most time on right now? If these two lists do not add up you really need to think about how you are spending your time. If getting to the next level in your favorite game or watching another episode of your favorite TV program is really more important to you than working towards your dream life.

There is always enough time for our priorities because we make the time for them. If you find you don’t have enough time in the day maybe it is time for you to readjust your priorities before your whole life passes you by while you sit in front of a computer screen or television.
