Make the Time

Replace the phrase “have time” with “make time.” 

Saying, “I don’t have time to [work towards your goal] ” isn’t doing you any favors.  Use " I am making time to [work for your goal]".

This way, start thinking of time as being a plentiful resource and declare it to be something within your control.

“I don’t mean to suggest you start missing all your deadlines, but I am suggesting that if you limit your working time to a reasonable number of hours, you will find you don’t get any less done.”

Not having time

To say ‘I don’t have time’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.' Perhaps the real issue is that you don’t really want to change.

What parts of your current situation do you like, and how are they affecting your desire to move forward?
