Good news!

Those things you want to learn… you can absolutely find the time to learn them.

And the bad news?

The bad news is you must convince yourself of 3 brutal truths about finding time to learn:

  1. You choose what you do with your time.
  2. You can find time.
  3. Either you choose or someone else chooses for you.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these truthes…

Truth #1: You choose what you do with your time

Whatever you’re doing with your time right now, you chose it.

Maybe it feels like an obligation or maybe you feel like you don’t have a choice. In the end, it was all you. No one else but you.

You chose to read this article. You chose to hang out with your friends. You chose to help out around the house. You chose to grab that beer and veg out.

Whether it’s doing chores, running errands or taking care of family, it feels like we often don’t have a choice. The thing is you made a choice to do those things, because you decided that doing them is better for you than not doing them.

You can always choose to skip chores, run those errands tomorrow or ignore your family. You might not like the consequences, but you are in control of what you do with your time.
