Everyone is busy. We all have our own problems. While some of us publicize them more than others, everyone has their own shit they are dealing with.
Point being, the “I do not have time excuse” really is not unique.
I have found that there is “always time” to spend if you really care about something. You make sacrifices for the things and people you care about.
The challenge comes when you are faced with a tough moral decision: what should you sacrifice and what for? I am not here to answer that question because it completely depends on your own personal preferences.
What I do want to say is this: people can feel how you care about them simply by how you treat your time with them. Like I said, everyone is busy. Assume that and expect that.
If you care for everyone’s time, like perhaps you do your own, then others will feel that.
Being “nice” and caring about others can go a really long way.
Btw. I’m working on this “editorial calendar” of sorts that I am going to be rolling out soon. I am going to stick to it and hopefully, be able to provide 10x more value in these posts.
