I Don’t Have Enough Time

Most people don’t like what they do for work! We all want to get ahead… or really slow down and enjoy life. A common comment is, “I Don’t Have Enough Time.

Everyone has 24 hours in the day (unless its a 23 or 25 hour day when adjusting the clocks). How do you spend it? Typically it is spent:

  • Sleep- 8 hours
  • Shower & get ready for the day- 0.5 hours
  • Commute to work- 1.5 hours
  • Work- 8-9 hours
  • Meals- 1.5-2 hours

That is a total of 19.5 to 21 hours per day, leaving only 3 to 4.5 hours. That’s only the main tasks. Add in tasks like playing with kids, meal preparation, cleaning, extra long rush hour, clubs, workout, the list goes on and on; there is no time left.

So great, I’m depressed now that there is no hope… what was the point of this post?
During my commute I listen to recorded classes that teach me about marketing, language, mindset, etc. This way I take better advantage of my time- 1. Commuting and 2. Learning. Right now I’m working on learning Spanish (I’ll tell you more about that soon).

Here’s what you do:

  1. Buy the MP3 player I talked about that I gave my wife in the post: New Years Trial- Exercise More (Part 2) OR one like it.
  2. Then load it with information you want to learn. Watch these posts for suggestions.
  3. Listen to it!

p.s. Was I too hard? Should I have sugarcoated this? I feel we need to just get real with ourselves!

  1. I think time is precious than money. If we have enough time,we can make money.But if we have enough money,we can’t make time. So time management is important in marketing
