“I don’t have time for… (insert unpleasant activity here, e.g. helping the neighbor move a couch into their basement).”
No matter how well you justify it in your head the above statement is always a lie.
Unfortunately, we’ve all delivered this lie on hundreds (if not thousands) of occasions.
The truth is that you have time for anything you choose.
Using the “I don’t have time” excuse (a.k.a. lie), amounts to telling ourselves (and others) that “I have no control over anything and let circumstances dictate my every decision.”
That’s no way to live.
This week, let’s own our decisions.
P.S. Listen to Mastering No from the Success 2.0 podcast for some tactical ideas on how to take control of your decisions.
