I don’t know how it happened, but I sneezed and somehow we’re now weeks away from the end of yet another quarter -- and not just any quarter. The second quarter. Which means we’re almost halfway through the entire year.
While I’d love to say that I’ve got all my ducks in a row, and all of my plans to "crush my goals" or whatever are going along swimmingly, I would be lying.
Here’s the thing though.
Now that the finish line is in sight, I’ve noticed a lot of people saying, “I don’t have time for this, I don’t have time for that” -- myself included, I’m not immune -- in a way that makes me wonder if that’s really the case.
Do we really not have enough time?
It doesn’t matter if it’s crunch time or a slow down period, time is a commodity that’s always in short supply.
If I'm being honest with myself about my own behavior, I believe that sometimes we make the choice to not make the time for a task, no matter how big or small we think that task is.
I’m tired of hearing myself say, "I don't have time," when I probably do. Moreover, I’m tired of others saying it to me, when they want to offload a content project or something else that no longer fits in with what they want to be doing.
