You Do Have Time
I hear this from people I care about all the time: “Oh wow, I would never have time to do something like that.”
That’s probably true. You probably don’t have time to go fishing every week, write a daily blog, or build a business outside of your day job. At least not how things currently stand.
How much time do you spend watching TV each week? How much time do you spend on your collective social media accounts each week? How many YouTube videos do you watch?
The list goes on, but the point remains the same. You might have to give up a number of secondary priorities to get what you want.
If you could become good enough at the fiddle to entertain your friends just by not watching tv, would you? If you could build a business that makes $5,000 per month, just by shutting down your social media accounts, would you?
When you choose to stop watching TV (or whatever your equivalent) in the name of spending time on the things you say you want from life, you put the fear of starting back in its place.
What could you quit this week?
