Everyone is always asking for more time…
“If I only had more time…” “Gee, I wish I had more time…” “There aren’t enough hours in the day…”
What in the world is that all about?
I don’t want more time… I want more discipline! I want the courage to say No! more often! I want to be able to power on my computer and just start writing without feeling the irresistable pull of facebook or gmail tugging at my sleeve!
No! I don’t want more time… Not until I’m sure I’m making the best use of the time I’ve got now!
Sure, I’d love to be more productive… Who wouldn’t? Wouldn’t you?
OK, so there are a few individuals we all know who laugh at the rest of us as we scurry around with that permanent look of constipated intensity etched into our collective portrait, people who don’t give a damn about productivity: yours or their own. And, while they are laughing at us we’re probably racing around feeling sorry for them, bathing in a false sense of moral superiority.
The question is: Who is right and who is wrong…
I don’t want more time… I want to be happy with the time I’ve got! No… That isn’t entirely correct. It’s not happy with the time I’ve got that I want: it’s “satisfied!” I want to be satisfied that I used the time I’ve got wisely, and wisely means for something other than work: something more than work!
