Everyone is busy.

Too busy.

We live in a culture that associates busyness with success.⁠

I have often heard the saying, “I get more done when I am busy.”

Is that really true?

Here is what I have heard.

You are too busy to make time for yourself.⁠

You are too busy to find a solution to your problems.⁠

You are too busy to eat well.⁠

You are too busy to workout.⁠

You are too busy to drink water.⁠

You are too busy to go to the toilet. (Yes, I see you, doing the wee dance like a 5 year old at your desk).⁠

I call BS.⁠

Time is a mental construct.⁠

“Busy” is an opinion.⁠

Let that sink in. Every time you are saying you are too busy you are DECIDING you are too busy. Yes, even when it feels really true you are ALWAYS deciding how you spend your time.

Even if someone is holding a gun to you, you are deciding you don’t want to get shot. Yes, I am THAT serious about it.

What would you like to do that you are telling yourself you don’t have time for?⁠

What if I told you I know how to create more time.⁠

The first step requires you to give time. It requires you to give ONE HOUR.⁠

If you are telling yourself you don’t have the time for a one hour consult, then you absolutely need to.⁠
