When people complain that they haven’t enough time to pursue their dreams, I refuse to believe it. Even if you’re raising a family and stuck in a full-time job you don’t enjoy, time can always be “found” to fulfill a cherished desire. The key is to use time more wisely.
Surveys tell us that Americans watch about 15 hours of television each week. If you’re unhappy with your current career or business, begin to restructure your routine by eliminating the tube-time.
Another productive time period is the lunch hour. You can eat and read simultaneously, so why not devote five lunch hours each week to study?
Set your alarm clock just fifteen minutes earlier than usual in the morning, and invest this time in reading an inspirational book, or material associated with the goals you want to achieve. Do this for a month--then set your alarm back another fifteen minutes. Continue this practice over a period of several months, until you have a full hour devoted to your goals.
Use this “found” time—a minimum of sixty minutes daily--exclusively for your personal and creative development. Guard it from interruptions and never skip a day. Over the course of a year, this string of hours represents 45 eight-hour workdays—plenty of time to get started toward achieving some cherished desire.
