I live a reasonably busy life and I have plenty of things to keep me occupied:

  • I am married with three young children who have increasingly active lives.
  • I run my own business from home which involves seeing clients during the day and most evenings.
  • I publish a new post on this blog every week day.

I know that I am not alone in living a full and busy life.

In the midst of all of this, there are other things that I know that I should do, but I often just can’t find the time.

I should exercise more.

I should read more.

I should catch up with old friends more.

I should network more.

I should pray more.

If you live a busy life, you probably feel the same way.

You see people who seem to live the ideal life and wonder where they find the time.

This is what I’ve learned.

No-one ever finds the time to do these things, they make the time.

  • They block it out in their diaries.
  • They get up extra early in the morning.
  • They are disciplined and focused.
  • They create consistent habits that they refuse to break.

So, if there are things that you want to do with your life, stop trying to find the time and start making it!
