“I don’t have time for _______.” We all have a million excuses we can fill in the blank with. It is infinitely easier to say you don’t have time for something than to make the time for it. How many times have you gotten out of something by claiming you don’t have time? Here’s the cold, hard truth: 9 times out of 10, you can MAKE time for whatever it is. There is so much possibility in each day, are you using it to its full potential? Or are you catching up on the latest Sophia Grace and Rosie video that Ellen just posted? I’m embarrassed to tell you the number of times I check TMZ everyday. But what if I stopped checking TMZ and used that time for something productive?

We all waste time in the day, which is the easy part. The hard part is to realize what portions of our time are wasteful and turn that time and energy towards something productive. Being productive with your time could take many different forms. Maybe its not checking your Facebook in the evenings and spending more quality time with your partner. Maybe you take the time to redo a resumé so you can finally quit that job you hate. Or maybe you free up just enough time to begin your yoga practice, in a studio or at home. Maybe you make time to write in the blog you’ve always wanted to start ;)

The answer to our problems is not more time in the day, but more worthwhile use of the limited time we have. You only live once, so make the most of it!
