I’m assuming that you have read 1st article of the Productivity series, if you have read then go ahead and read this article and if not, then what you’re doing here, go read the 1st article.
This is 2 of 10 Productivity Series.
So today, we’re going to talk about a popular line that goes like “I Don’t Have Time”.
Let me first say thank you for reading this. This will be a weekly newsletter, hope you enjoy it. Now I will see you every Sunday at 9:00 AM (IST).
I Don’t Have the Time
I mean, one way or another, you may have said “I Don’t Have Time” for many things, to be frank, I used it many times, when I was in high school.
When you say “I don’t have time to do exercise or read a book” you’re actually giving excuses to do other stuff.
It could be watching Netflix, or YouTube, going out with friends, scrolling on social media, or doing anything else to ignore the exercise.
I get it, exercise doesn’t give an instant dopamine kick, and you will have to exercise for months to get small results. So it’s better to scroll on Instagram and enjoy life.
Now, as we discussed in the 1st article, you have to choose what’s important and useful to you.
Doing Exercise every day won’t give you big biceps but in the long run, you will see results…
The problem didn’t arise right now because you have been training your brain all over the years.
If you haven’t gone to the gym or done any sort of physical exercise for years then how can you expect something from your brain?
Your mind knows one thing which is “How can I make you happy”. It doesn’t care whether you get happy by watching po*n or exercising.
Your Mind has one job which is to make you happy and make you laugh.
So from now, when you say “I don’t have time”, be aware of it and ask yourself “why I’m skipping exercise or reading for Instagram or anything else”.
Solution Of Excuse Word
One of the best solutions I got for “excuse” was from Never Finished by David Goggins.
The author simply says,
“Whenever you feel like not doing exercise, pull out of your smartphone and start recording yourself. Now, start giving excuses why you don’t want to do exercise today, let everything out, scream as much as you want but tell the truth”
Once you finish recording, watch that videos every day till you realize how dumb you’re and how petty excuses you have been giving to yourself.
This is the best way to make your brain aware of the things you have been delaying whether it’s exercise, reading books, starting a new business, or anything else.
Also, if you like, you can also write your excuses in the notebook, let everything out of your mind, and don’t filter your thoughts when you’re recording yourself or writing.
Keep in mind, you have 24 hours as anybody on earth, it depends on how you plan to use it.
You can use 24 hours to use social media or spend time on goals.
It’s up to you, always.
Also, from this time, never say “I don’t have time”, always say, I have more important work to do rather than Doing this or that.
That important work can be exercise, reading a book, working on a project, or something else.
Now, you can’t just say “I don’t have time” and then sit on the sofa and start using Instagram.
Exercise for the day
Whenever you say “I Don’t Have Time”, write it down on paper or a note app. Also, write, why did you say it and how did you say it.
Monitor yourself for a week and see, how many times you say “I don’t have time”
I’m going to bed and I said to myself that tomorrow I will do exercise at 7:00 AM and I went to sleep.
I woke up at 5:00 AM and the first thought I have is, I don’t have time to do exercise at 7:00 Am because I have lots of work today, so I will exercise at 6:00 PM for sure.
I did everything, wrote articles, shot videos, and even took some meetings.
Now, again, the time is 6:00 PM but now, I said to myself that “I have worked a lot for the day and I’ve tried and I also don’t have time right now, so from the next day, I will for sure, exercise at 7:00 AM”
This is a sign of procrastination and we’ll talk about the same in the 11th article of the productivity series.
- You liar, you have time but if you don’t feel like spending it on things like Exercise, reading, or working on your dreams.
- “I don’t have time” is a bullshit line, never use it.
- Life is more than watching reels or even porn, come back to reality and see what’s really happening.
Quote of The Day
“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” – Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
There you go, this was the 2nd article of the Productivity series. I hope you will apply something from what you have read today.
Whenever you say “I don’t have time” you’re also training your mind that, you don’t want to do this or that task.
This way, your mind won’t bother doing that one task, it would be exercise, reading books, or anything else.
So do me a favor and delete the “I don’t have time” line from your dictionary.
That being said, in the 3rd productivity article, we’re going to talk about the “Myth Of Motivation”. I’m 100% sure that, you gonna love the 3rd article because you will question your belief.
See you there…
