I’m embarrassed to even murmur about there not being enough hours in a day when there are working women with children that not only get themselves ready for work but feed/dress their kids, knock out a few household chores and drop the kids off at daycare/school before they arrive at work. I find myself to be a complete liar when I say I don’t have time to exercise when it’s not uncommon for me to see a coworker jogging during their lunch hour while I, on the other hand, use that time to eat. Then on Sunday night, while complaining the weekend went by too fast, I fail to recall all the sleeping in I did instead of investing time in my personal goals like so many others.
While my list of excuses can go on and on, there are people who work and obtain degrees, balance their families and a high-profile career and still others do all of the above and train for a marathon. We all have same number of hours in a day, the same amount of time to get ahead of the rat race, the same opportunity to check something meaningful off our bucket list. And, watching TV, talking on the phone and playing around on the internet don’t contribute much to accomplishing these goals. So, today, I’ll be the first to confess that I really don’t need more hours in a day, I simply need to use my daily hours more wisely.
