Day 1.5 (so I didn't lose the link)

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I found this article a while ago, and in fact the whole site is full of interesting stuff, but this in particular spoke to me.

The basic point (for those of you without the urge to clicky the magic linky) is replace "I don't have time" (or as John wrote about today, "I can't") with "It is not a priority".
Makes you see things, especially choices we make, in a whole new light.

'I don't have time to work out' becomes 'It is not a priority to work out'. Owning that decision is hard.

'I don't have time to make a healthy meal' becomes 'It is not a priority to make a healthy meal'.

Yes, sometimes we really actually don't have time. But at least in my case, it means I didn't make that thing (whatever it is) a priority. And I need to, if I'm going to do the things I want to do.

    We do fool ourselves a great deal. Always good to get a reminder.
