How often have you felt that you just don’t have enough time to get everything done? For most people, prioritizing goals doesn’t cross their mind on a daily basis.
None of us have (or ever will have) enough time to get everything done. Every night we will go to sleep with work undone. Even the most multi-tasker personalities will die with work undone. Are you encouraged yet?
The Predicament in Prioritizing Goals
I have recently spoken with a lot of middle school students that have used the excuse of “not having enough time” or “too busy to get projects, homework, or tasks completed on time.”
It gets better. One of the best excuses I heard recently had to do with a student not having enough time to work on something was because of “too many chores”. What happened with the dog ate my homework kind of reason lol!
While I don’t want to minimize the fact that a student may really think she / he does not have enough time, my best guess is they might have picked it up from some of us adults.
For the parents, both stay at home and working professional, I want to challenge you to stop using the word busy or not having enough time from your vocabulary. Whenever I fall short at work, with my wife, or kids I do my best to be honest with them and let them know that I was not prioritizing goals correctly.
Time Reveals our Priorities.
I have a question for you. Imagine I gave you $86,400. However, there was one catch. Use it or lose it. You would need to spend every dollar in a period of 24 hours or you would lose the money. Do you think you could do it? Of course you could!
Unfortunately, I cannot give each of you reading this blog $86,400. Please keep reading 🙂 But, I can remind you that you and I have been gifted with 86,400 seconds to use today.
