It’s Not A Matter of Time.

When it comes to things that need to be done, I’ve learned something:

It’s not a matter of whether or not you have enough time. It’s a matter of whether or not you actually want to do it.

Case in point: me and exercise. For years, I claimed I was too busy to exercise. Now, I’m just as busy as I ever was, but I devote 1.5 hours a day (one hour actually working out; 30 minutes getting ready, driving and stretching) to exercise and hardly ever skip it even when there’s a good reason.

What’s the difference? Now I want to exercise so I fit it in my day no matter what.

It was never a matter of time. It was a matter of desire. If you really want to do something, you can almost always figure out a way to do it. I realize there are exceptions, but the fact is, if we want something bad enough we will make it happen.
