We all have time, we just decide what to do with it. And sometimes we don’t make this decision wisely. If we want to make time, we need to think about it. How are you spending your time? Are you doing the things that are really important to you? Are you focusing on your priorities?
A couple of months ago, I decided to analyse how I was spending my time and I noticed that I was spending way too much time commuting. I thought I didn’t have time but I actually had been spending about 1 hour and 20 minutes of my day just travelling to and from work. Now I needed to rearrange things. How could I spend my time better? Should I cycle to work? Should I get a license? Should I move closer to work? I decided on the last option and started looking for a place. I have to be honest, I wasn’t looking very hard. However, funnily enough, my landlady sold the house and gave me 1 month and a half notice. Now I was being forced to move. It was really stressful to look for a new place but now I found it and guess what, it’s closer to work. Maybe that was the universe helping me get what I wanted.
So my point is: If you want to make time, analyse how you’ve been spending it, spot the problem, look for solutions and make changes. Hopefully the universe will give you a little help as well =)
