All it Takes is Time

Ink on watercolor paper – Words: Jim Croce

This is the challenge of humans across the globe, enough time to do the things they want to do. No matter who you are, where you live, or what you do each day there never seems to be enough time. We can spend time, invest time, even waste time, there just never seems to be enough of it to go around.

This human conundrum begs a question, how much time do you need? Or another way of putting it is how much time does it take to do the thing you want to do? If the number of minutes you need could be calculated would it then be possible to carve out or dedicate time for that period to do this important thing? Or is it easier to complain about not enough time instead of doing a little math and then getting to work?

We all procrastinate on the things we don’t want to do, don’t know how to do, or don’t like being told to do. But to procrastinate doing the things we want to do once we figure out what those things are? That seems silly, yet we all do it. How much easier it is to complain than to make a change and move forward. Now we’re talking about fear, the unknown, responsibility, or even possibly wild success. A body at rest stays at rest, a body in motion stays in motion. All it takes is time and courage to take the first step toward that desirable ‘thing’ to get in motion, then it means making a commitment to sty in motion.

So how does this dilemma get resolved? First, know what you want to do which can take a lifetime to figure out…which takes time. Invest this time in yourself as it will pay off exponential returns on your happiness, health and relationships. When you are happy and alive it is infectious. Second, figure out how much time that thing takes and make a commitment to do it on a regular basis. Why not conquer the human dilemma for your own life AND live fruitful and happy life? All it takes is time…
