Time Is A Choice
By Laura Vanderkam • December 29, 2016
Instead of saying "I don't have time" try saying "it's not a priority" and see how that feels. Often that's a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don't want to. But other things are harder. Try it:
"I'm not going to edit your resume, sweetie, because it's not a priority."
"I don't go to the doctor because my health is not a priority."
If these phrases don't sit well, that's the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don't like how we're spending an hour, we can choose differently.
