“I would have done …but I do not have enough time”

We all have made this statement at one point in time or the other. I was talking to a few friends the other day and we were talking about how we would have done a certain thing in a better way and how we would have had the opportunity to do some things if we had the time.

Reflecting on the conversation I had with my friends, I realised that many people, especially students make this “near legitimate excuse” of having no time.

I refer to it as near legitimate because of the fact that truly we do not have enough time- this where time management comes in (I am sure we have read and heard a lot on this topic).

But the question is what do we do with the time we have, most of the time we waste small minutes and hours and lament at the end of the day of having not done anything productive. I have been working on making use of the few minutes and hours I have between classes and have achieved a lot in that respect.

Even in writing this article, i had to make time between my busy schedule which includes assignments, tests and school work in general .Particularly this quote by ― Katerina Stoykova Klemer inspired me to do that:

“If you don’t write when you don’t have time for it, you won’t write when you do have time for it.” 
We have to make time for the things we want to achieve and stop making excuses or blaming the lack of no time.

Everyone has 24 hours, but people have different level of productivity and the difference between people that are highly productive and people of low productivity is their resolve to achieve their goals and maximization of their time.

That certification you should have registered, make time for it!

The people you should have visited, make time for it!

The posts you should have published, make time for it!

The songs you should have written, make time for it!

The bad news is that time flies, the good news is that you are the pilot”- Michael Altshuler
