NOT ENOUGH TIME IN A DAY

“If only I had more time.”


24 HOURS IS NOT ENOUGH

Do you ever get the feeling that you don’t have enough time to work no matter how hard you put the work in? Because you want to see yourself in this life, but for some reason the more you work the further it seems you are away from your goal. Sometimes I wish we had 48 hours in a day instead of 24 hours in a day. Now, if we had that much time, would be surprised how many people would waste even more time. But for the people looking to grow something then they will have enough time. But you know what, even with this, we still might not feel we have enough time.

THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

The age of the Earth is billions of years old. But humanity has only been around for 250,000 years while the average person lives to be 78 years old. So when you look at your life, we are here for such a short period pertaining to the overall scheme of life. So we don’t feel there is enough time because we can’t see past the reality of what we are on this planet. But the problem is that when we think in this context we will miss out on a lot of things in life. You don’t want to get to the end and then feel like your life meant nothing.

TIME IS VERY RELATIVE

Time is not the time that we all experience in life. I feel from my space that I never have enough time. This could be good or it could be something bad. To me, I feel like life is moving so fast that I am trying to catch up to what it is I am trying to do. Now, in my same space I could have another person say that time dragged along. And when you feel time is dragging, you don’t feel motivated and it can hurt success. If you don’t have enough time, you might be closer to your goal.

RUNNING ON EMPTY: DO YOU FEEL YOU DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME WORKING

Man With Hand on Temple Looking at Laptop

“I just need more time.”


work work work

The majority of Americans work a 40 hour work week. Now there are those that work more or even less, but the average is 40 hours. With 168 hours in a week, 40 seems like so little time. But when you factor in lunch, travel, getting ready for work, and raising children, as well tending to your significant other and yourself, that time goes fast. So what is a person to do when they work so much they feel they never have enough time for anything else? You have to sit back and assess your life and understand if what you’re doing is worth the fight. Should you be giving this much of yourself to your work.

nothing but time

We feel we don’t have time, but in reality, we have nothing but time. It’s just that we don’t properly delegate our time the way we should. Time is one of those relative things in life. Because I could be working my overnight job and time flies even though I have been there for 10 hours, versus 4 – 5 hours previously worked in a different role. So how does one aspect of time differ from another? It’s because we all have the same 24 hours, but they way we dictate our time is going to have an effect on the way we perceive time.

life standing still

When you’re working a job, it seems like time never ticks if you don’t like your job. Once again, this is relative because people who love their work never have enough time. But in the moment when you’re working, you will work and work and work and work, yet only 10 minutes have passed. But getting ready for work time flies. The last hour of work is long, but the 45 minutes to 1 hour to get home is fast. Anytime you take time out for self, life won’t be at a stand still. Once again, our perception of time is dictated by our perception of an activity that we take part in given our mental state of fulfillment.

you will never understand

People will tell you all day that you don’t understand. You have more time to yourself and they have all these obligations. They are constantly empty once work is complete. In reality time is not the problem with people running on empty. The reason you wish you had more time is because daily life is a mental drain. You’re mentally and sometimes physically drained. So you have time, it’s used sleeping and sitting around. Just think, remember earlier I said 168 hours in a week. Well, 40 hours for work, there is 120 left. You sleep 7 – 8, and now you have between 64 and 71 hours left. You travel to and from work 5 days a week, now you’re down to 54 – 61 hours left. If you have children, that is a massive chunk, but so many people don’t. Let me ask you something, what are you doing with all that time?
