I guess what I am really talking about here is finding clarity in what you want to do. I often find myself “not having time” to do things that I say are important to me. But is this really true? Because at the end of the day, if something is important enough, you will somehow find the time to do it, won’t you?
So we need to be clear about what we really want to do – because if you consistently find yourself running out of time to do something, perhaps that thing really isn’t that important to you. You may think it is, but your actions (or lack thereof) would appear to say otherwise.
This dilemma isn’t quite as simple as it seems, of course – for example, there are levels of desire and motivation to accomplish various goals, and there most definitely are real world obstacles that can stand in the way of doing them. Sometimes these obstacles are time limited, sometimes they might be financial, and sometimes the obstacle may simply be “in your head” (this is a topic for another discussion entirely).
So if you say you want to do something but then find yourself “never having the time” to do it, there would appear to be some disconnect here. Perhaps you need to delve a little deeper to find out what’s causing it.
Maybe you don’t really want to do it.
Or maybe you’re afraid to do it…
