I hear it all the time.
I’m too busy, I’m overwhelmed at work, I don’t have time to think ahead.
I call BS.
One thing for certain, if you don’t address this excuse it will continue to haunt you.
If an emergency came out, you would find the time.
Here is a quick exercise to help you get rid of your busyness excuse:
1) What are you outcomes/goals?
2) Take 60 seconds to list everything you do during your day.
3) Go through your list, and highlight only the top 20% that move you closer to your goal.
4) Delegate or eliminate the rest.
