“It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.” – Henry Ford
The average American watches 5 hours of television a day. What’s the most common excuse people give for not exercising? Not enough time. Maybe that’s not your excuse for not exercising, but maybe it’s your reason for why you’re not looking for another job that’s more fulfilling. Or for not working on that house project. Or for not reading the book that’s been sitting on your coffee table. I’m not demonizing television and saying we shouldn’t watch it, but if we find ourselves saying, “I want to do x, but I don’t have time…” then it’s time to really look at where we are spending those minutes and hours in the day. Successful people aren’t less busy, in fact they do more, but they use their time wisely by planning and staying organized. It can be as simple as preparing your breakfast the night before so you can have those extra 15 minutes in the morning for yourself to read, meditate, do yoga, or…actually eat breakfast!
