To say you don’t have time, Is to say you don’t want to

To say you don’t have time, Is to say you don’t want to*

‘Yeah I don’t have time for that’

We’ve all said it, People say it to me all the time and I have definitely said it several times…

We say it because we don’t want to do the thing we’re referring too…
Because we find the time to watch tv for hours on end, Find time to go out with our friends, To go shopping or whatever…

But the gym, Reading that book, Starting that business [Insert some important shit you need to do here]… Yeah, we don’t have time for that…

Its a lie we tell other people and ourselves so that we can get out of doing something we don’t want to do…

I’ll break down my lie here about exercising…

‘Hows the training going Roy’

What training?

‘Your not training?’

No I don’t have time to come all the way down here (Titan) I have to catch a bus, then a train, then walk to the gym, Then I have to do the workout and then get home again, by the time I’ve done all of that I’ve lost a whole day…

And whilst the last part is true, it would take a hell of a chunk out of my day…

There are several gyms in my area two walking or a very short bus journey away…

The truth was that I was scared of fucking my already fucked back up again and I really couldn’t be arsed because I had gotten lazy

And after breaking down my lie and exposing this truth I have finally done something about it…

The moral is if it’s important to you stop lying to yourself about why you’re not doing it and do something about it…

Or

If you really don’t want to do it because you don’t value it then just tell yourself that and take the burden off your chest and do something you do value

*I can’t remember who I’m quoting
