What is the deal with people always saying they are “too busy” or “soooo busy” that they cannot take part in the lives of others? Seriously, if you don’t want to hang out or even take the millisecond it takes to ‘like’ something, just tell me. I promise, I won’t be annoyed. I’d prefer the honesty than the dramatic stories you provide for not being around when really you were probably sitting at home, on your couch, watching American Idol.
Here’s the deal, the day consists of 24 hours. That doesn’t change from one day to the next, luckily, or else people who are too busy for the lives they currently have would literally fall off a cliff. The average person sleeps 6 to 8 hours a night so that leaves 16 to 18 hours to do your daily activities. If you work full-time than you have an 8 hour period to reduce from this time, however, even during working hours you can do personal things. I know, I know, we all like to portray ourselves as “perfect employees” but come on, you know you have your phone right there, sneaking onto Facebook or sending texts to random people. Checking your email, horoscope, or whatever other apps you have going on. It is something we all do, so chill. It’s perfectly normal. The only thing that is not normal is the constant lack of time so many people seem to deal with. I think this comes back to learning time management skills. I mean, I understand people have work, kids, school, personal commitments, appointments, and numerous other activities going on, but to say that you don’t have time is insane. That is essentially all we have. Every second we are breathing is time given to us to do with what we will. It is our choice how we use that time, what we make time for and what we choose to do and not to do. I also have a very busy schedule right now being a full-time student again, I have also had the full-time job with various commitments following but, I know how to manage my time. If something came up that was important to me, or important to someone close to me, I would rearrange things to be there for them. That is how life works.
Bottom line is, I am tired of hearing the excuse “I don’t have time”. It is exhausted beyond belief! I feel like making up lists to carry around with me of literature on time management so that when I am presented with an excuse maker I can hand it over. The downside here would be having the space in my purse to lug so many lists around, that’s how bad this excuse has become. Get a new line people! Please!
On a brighter note, I must get back to my studies now, as this has just taken up a chunk of my precious time 😉 Have a productive day bloggerville!
