“I don’t have time.”
“I don’t have money.”
“I’m just too busy.”
These excuses (that we all make at some point or another) are no longer valid. We’ve all been guilty of staying within our comfort zone, even if we aren’t truly comfortable there. We spend time dreaming of better scenarios but then make excuses about why we can’t change.
But I’ve found that these excuses have been made null and void because of technology. Technology adds time to our day – because we can be extremely productive without even getting out of our jammies. We can manage our time better if we choose to do so by adding even just 15-30 minutes a day to think about solutions to improving our lives; whether it be adding exercise, starting a biz or cleaning up unresolved problems.
Obviously, most people do not have the disposable income to do everything they’d like to do. So we need to change our mindset and be creative. Utilize what we have. With technology, we now have access to “market” ourselves and our business through free channels of social media such as Twitter, FB, Blogs, Google+, Pinterest. We can get resourceful and reach out to people for recommendations, referrals and advice without it costing a dime and mobile apps help us to be efficient.
So go ahead – reach out, connect, research, engage, ask… see what you can get done for free…and fast.
We’re all busy. I’m constantly in awe of certain people who juggle it all so gracefully: Three kids, a thriving business, time to visit the spa and write five blogs a week…geeze!
But the grass is always greener. We all have 24 hours in a day, the difference is how we choose to spend the time. The good news is that with tech, we can get a lot done and fast (especially if we really focus). We can choose to spend just 15 minutes a day improving the things we usually tend to ignore and then complain about.
The bad news…we no longer have valid excuses. So let’s get comfortable in a better comfort zone!
