I wish I had more time to...

Every time you say yes, you are saying no to a million other things.

Your life is the sum of your priorities.  What you spend your time on is a literal representation of your priorities.  If it's not in alignment, it's time for a change.

Take Inventory

Do an evaluation of where you are spending every minute of your day. What’s it spent on?  Write it down and be honest with yourself.


Is this where you want to spend your time?  Yep, it's that simple.  Identify everything.

Make Changes

If it’s not bringing you joy, cut it.  What do you want more of?  Prioritize it.


Are you scrolling your phone all day? Put an application timer/lock. Are you spending a lot of time on TV, movies, etc. that could go toward hobbies or spending time with friends and family?  Switch it up.  Do you genuinely dislike your job?  Put in the work to find another.  You are not stuck where you are.

This includes people.  Fit in people who add to your life, and politely decline invitations from those who don't.


All that newfound time allows you the ability to add back in the things you want to be doing.  What will help you craft your best possible life?

Add in the things that align to your short and long-term goals.  Add in the things that energize you.  Add in the things you are passionate about.  Add in the things you've wanted to start for years but never made time for.  Add in time for yourself.

Actually Stuck?

If you are genuinely tapped out for time, consider if it's worth it to outsource something.

We have a house cleaner, a lawn service, and a pool service.  That's five hours a week of things we don't have to do, not including the regular maintenance on the tools needed to accomplish these things, and it remains on a dedicated schedule.  This frees up mental and physical bandwidth that I use on my many various hobbies.

You can't get time back.  Use it wisely.
