You don’t have time for that? Bull$#!†.

Takeaway: “I don’t have time for that” is BS. When something is truly important, you pull time for it from somewhere else.

697890_90678409The phrase “I don’t have time for” should never be said. We all get the same amount of time every day. If you can’t do something it’s not about the quantity of time. It’s really about how important the task is to you. I’m sure if you were having a heart attack, you’d magically find time to go to the hospital. That time would come from something else you’d planned to do, but now seems less important. This is how time works all the time. What people really mean when they say “I don’t have time” is this thing is not important enough to earn my time. It’s a polite way to tell people they’re not worth your time.

This quote fits well with the self-honesty article I posted yesterday. When you say that you don’t have time for something, what are you really saying?

If it was truly important to you, you would have pulled the time from something else.
