The Illusion of “I don’t have time”

We all have time, enough time, to do what we wish to do. I strongly believe in this. They key is to be crystal clear at first about what we wish to do and then to set it as a priority. Reflecting on our days, weeks and months, we will definitely find slots of time that are not well invested. Time we spend to commute from home to work and vice versa, time we spend getting ready for work or outings, time we spend preparing meals, time we spend waiting at medical clinics,..etc. Identifying the slots of time we don’t truly invest well is a corner stone in managing our time and leading our lives. Then comes the step of better investing these slots whether by listening to e-books, music, doing breathing exercises, repeating mantras. The secret is to identify the things we have no time for and then schedule them during the slots of wasted time.
