Time Well Spent
Updated: Jan 3, 2020
I don’t have time.
You say it, I say it, and we all say it.
The truth is, “I don’t have time” is a fallacy.
It’s the story we make up when we are looking for a way out.
When we are actively avoiding something or not doing something we are supposed to be doing.
The language you use is very important, it’s inherently linked to what you believe to be true about the world.
So if you say “I don’t have time” often enough, then you’ll actually start to believe it.
Like somehow the universe only gave you 10 hours today instead of the customary 24.
Now there’s no point denying that we all get 24 hours in a day and in most normal cases we actually have a choice about how we spend it.
That’s right, spend it!
You see, time is a currency, you get so many hours deposited into our account every day and you decide how to spend it.
So in a sense, you trade with it all the time.
