<READING TIME: 2m00s>
Jason comes home to his partner and 2 kids after a long day in the office.
His partner asks him: “how was your day?”
Jason replies: “So busy – I just feel like I never have enough time.”
Are you like Jason?
Do you feel like you “never have enough time”?
What you’re really saying is you THINK you “never have enough time”.
What you probably FEEL is: out of control; overwhelmed; anxious; powerless?
Am I right?
Luckily – the phrase “I never have enough time” is completely useless and unnecessary.
Factually it’s incorrect.
There’s no such thing as ENOUGH time.
Time is time.
It is the same 24 hours a day that you, I and everyone else get every day.
But what I’d like you to consider is that when you say this phrase, you’re actually saying either one of two things:
- I haven’t prioritised this yet, OR
- This is not a priority for me right now
And when you instead say one of the above phrases, how do those make you FEEL?
I’m guessing you feel: more in control; certain; powerful; authentic?
It’s ok if something is not a priority for you right now or that you haven’t prioritised it yet – but OWN that. SAY it that way!
You’ll show up more powerfully in your relationships (and with yourself) when you respond in this way.
And you’ll FEEL more in control too.
- If you consistently think that you “don’t have enough time”, then relook and redecide your priorities and non-negotiables
- PLAN time to think about what your priorities are and do this often
- Also, be sure to then PLAN the time for the tasks and activities that are your priorities
