What is the biggest excuse…for everything?
Maybe it is, “I don’t have time.”
And maybe it was true. But it isn’t anymore.
Life is short and nobody ever has time to waste.
But this pandemic has given you the time to do what is meaningful and important. The limitations of travel and activity imposed by Covid-19 have provided more space and time in your life than you probably ever had before.
Are you still saying “I don’t have time?”
What do you have time for now?
A hobby you haven’t been able to pursue?
Learning a language you always wanted to speak or speak better?
Taking a coding course?
Better organizing your personal and professional life?
Reading a daunting book you would learn much from?
It is more important than every to fill your life with meaningful projects. If you don’t your days become even more tedious and you lose a sense of accomplishment. Projects you do in your home can provide a real sense of accomplishment. Not everything can or need be about work.
You do have time, unprecedented time. Make the most of time and you make the most of your life. There is no reason not to because the big excuse is dead.
