There are three resources or commodities that we can use as human beings-time, energy and money. Whenever you say you can’t do something, it is very likely that you can’t do it because you don’t have enough time or energy or money.
I think time is the most valuable one. You can’t replace time. I always wonder why do we still waste our time doing things that don’t help us reach our dreams? If we could eliminate at least some of the activities that are just a waste of our time, we could have gotten what we wanted so much faster.
There is one question I always ask a person when I hear “I don’t have enough time to do that” excuse. How much time do you spend watching television?
According to one study the average American watches four hours worth of television each day. This is 28 hours a week, 1460 hours a year. This is crazy! I won’t even go into how much negativity you are getting bombarded with watching television, but can you imagine what you could have done if you dedicated at least half of that time to doing something to get closer to your dreams?
Now I don’t assume that everyone reading this blog watches television 4 hours a day. But even if it is 4 hours a week, those are 4 hours with which you could have done something that really matters.
Try it at least. Make a goal to watch half as much television next week. And use the time to do something towards your goals. Even if it is something small. Small steps add up.
