A friend recently told me that he wished he could spend more time with his family.
This individual was traveling 3 out of 4 weeks a month for their job.
And yet when he was in town, he was working 60+ hours in the office.
I told my friend that if he wanted to spend more time with his family, then he needed to make a choice.
“You have to choose where you are spending your time.”
Where Are You Spending Your Time?
You say you don’t have time. But, it’s going somewhere.
Where are you spending it?
At work? Watching TV? Complaining? Goofing off?
You have the time.
It’s really a question of what you choose to do with it.
If you know where you want to spend your time, then do it.
It may require some life changes,
It may even require some sacrifices,
but where you spend your time is ultimately up to you.
Only You Can Make That Choice
So, don’t say you don’t have time to spend with your family.
Don’t say you don’t have time to work out.
Instead, look at where you need make a choice to spend more time… (and perhaps, need to…)
Where do you want to spend your time?
- With Your Family
- Doing a Hobby
- Writing That Book
- Working Out
- Building a Relationship
- Taking Care of Those You Care About
- Learning a New Skill
Make Your Time a Choice
If you are not satisfied about where you are spending your time, then do something about it.
Choose how and where you spend your time.
Because it’s up to you, each and every day.
Question: Where do you want to spend more of your time?
