I don't Have Time!

How often have you heard people saying this to you in order to avoid doing what you are asking them to do? Or you yourself using this as an "excuse" not doing whatever thing that you've been asked to do or procrastinate the thing that you ought to do now? Do you think this is a valid reason or just an excuse?

I am sure many of us have busy schedule and since we are living in an information overloaded age, there are lots of stuff that we need to learn and re-learn. Thus, time is always not enough for many of us and it is always an easy target to be "blame" on.

However, you all would agree with me that time is the only factor in LIFE that is FAIR to everyone i.e. regardless whether you are rich or poor, young or old, male or female, everyone only entitled to 24 hours a day, no more no less! Thus, no one has more time than you and you are not having any lesser time than everybody else. So, why would you say "I don't have time!"?

I deduced that time is NOT the main culprit for any non-action, priority setting is! Simply put, when you are not taking action that you ought to take, it just means that the particular item/issue is not in your priority at the moment, rightly or wrongly!

So, in future you may want to consider saying "This thing is not in my priority list at the moment" instead of just  take the easy way out and blame it on time.

Last but not least, my sharing of the original quote:

"Business is deemed successful when it creates value; Life is deemed successful when it finds  meaning!"


P/S: I am sure you are familiar with Paypal, have you heard of Paypal's competitors AlertPay or Moneybookers? Do you know how they fair in their fees in comparison?
