Have you ever thought “I don’t have time”?

For exercise, healthier eating or anything else?

You’re in the overwhelming majority if you have.

Always busy but not always getting done the important stuff.

I referenced this yesterday.

I read a study the a few days ago.

Apparently only one third of people use a schedule.

You know – a diary, calendar on their phone, etc.

If someone doesn’t have a schedule, can they ever really use a lack of time as a justification for something?

It’s like saying they don’t have enough money and not making any effort to budget.

Not losing weight and not making any effort to become aware of their calorie intake.

Invariably, when asked, most people without a schedule will say “It’s all in my head”.

Which is just the same as trying to work out our calorie intake in our heads………

But gaining weight.

Or working out our income and outgoings ‘in our head’……..

But getting further into debt each month.

Without a plan for how will use our time……

Can we ever fully give ‘not having time’ as an excuse?

If we don’t plan our days, someone else will.

It will get filled up with that less important……

But seemingly urgent stuff.

When I’ve got people to track their food on MyFitnessPal, the reality usually jumps out of the screen at them.

When people start scheduling and tightly planning their use of time………

The same usually happens.

We all have 10,080 minutes in the week.

It’s how we plan to use them and how much we stick to that plan that makes the difference.

We often avoid planning and scheduling because it feels “boring” and “restrictive”.

When the reality is the opposite.

It gets stuff done more quickly and efficiently.

Allowing for greater progress in things that are important to us.

And creating more time for the fun stuff.

Planning and scheduling doesn’t restrict freedom and options……..

It creates them!
