Today I want to write about how can we do all the things we want to do in a life so busy and short. Well….really it’s about commitment, costs and prioritization. If your goals are to be a great employee, workout, learn guitar and improve at Spanish this is a tall order on top of a list that might already include you being a boyfriend/husband or even harder, a parent! So how can you make all this happen? This is a question people need to ask themselves and get results. Life will race away and you will be left in the dust many moons from now wondering why you never sought out any passion other than work or family.
The first is commitment; make sure you are committed to these things and take an honest approach to what you really can and can’t commit to. If your schedule simply won’t let you get away to the gym for any amount of time during the work week due to work and school don’t commit to joining a gym. Perhaps just take runs in the neighborhood at night after the kids are asleep or do in home workouts. Or join the gym for weekends only to get started.
Costs cannot be ignored, learning an instrument, language or cooking can be expensive! Not only the tools to do the job such as instruments; but the teachers don’t come cheap. If you don’t have the costs, I challenge you now; Don’t let that stop you!! get a small loan you can pay back with super low interest; take a second job working one day a week doing something you love. Even simpler, drop something your spending weekly, monthly or yearly to match the lesson costs. You will NEVER REGRET finding time to fulfill your dream to learn something.
Lastly, Prioritize! Whats most important? Well that’s obvious…your family and your job which pays the bills and those commitments which don’t let down family and friends. But sometimes in life it’s all a great compromise. Maybe you need to drop dance class to be able to learn French or drop wine classes in order to get to the gym and be healthy which is high on the list. Many people spend time with a therapist and that too is a priority.
In closing I look forward to you all finding a way to do it all and working towards your goals. I hope this article helped you realize accomplishing your goals isn’t easy but certainly can be achieved. First make a commitment to what you can do! Be weary of your costs and find out if there is a way to achieve a goal without the costs being affected and lastly always be sure to prioritize! Putting the most important issue first is key in life.
