This is part of a continuing series of Ten Reasons Not to Have What You Want.
Time and money are probably the two top reasons why most people say they don’t have what they want.
You may feel a bit trapped with the busyness of every day life that keeps you from living the life of your dreams.
Maybe you have a full time job, kids, taking care of aging parents, or a whole myriad of things that fill the hours of your day.
Here is the truth, though. If you Really want something, you can make the choice to find time. You can choose to do at least one small thing a day to start building momentum.
You can look at what you are currently doing and eliminate something to give yourself a little extra time.
For example, let’s say you want to write but it is too hectic at home and you are constantly interrupted. You could make a short “appointment” to go to a coffee shop, the library, the park or even in the car.
If you have research to do, maybe you can spend 15 minutes or a half hour of your lunch hour.
You can choose to skip watching a TV show and work on your dream instead.
It doesn’t mean there won’t be hard choices to make but the point is that you do have a choice.
You may not have the luxury of working on your dream full time but it doesn’t mean you have to wait until you have a big block of time.
Some people even find that they get more done with small bursts of focused time than when they have big blocks of time.
Basically you are making a commitment and creating a habit to work on something that will make a difference.
So the next time you say you don’t have the time, decide to make the time instead.
