What Gets In the Way Of Having Enough Time? (Hint…it might be you!)

What Gets In the Way Of Having Enough Time? (Hint. . .it might be you!)

One of the most common complaints I hear from entrepreneurs, friends, professionals (heck! even my kids most days when I tell them it’s bed time) is that there isn’t/wasn’t/won’t be enough time.

That’s why I was so blown away when I was having tea with my friend and total “who I want to be when I grow up” coaching crush Jamie G Dougherty and I commented on her cool ring.  She told me it was the inside of a watch and she wears it so she can actually SEE that she always has enough time.

Let’s stop and digest this for a second.  This girl ALWAYS has enough time. . . can you see why I’m so blown away by her?

It made me stop and think about what I’d be doing if I had enough time.  I would definitely be working out a bit more (Nike – here I come). I would be reading more. And yes, I’d probably play more silly games of Hello Kitty with my daughter (thank you so much to her friend Maya for THAT birthday gift! 😉 )

So what have I been doing?

I’ve been playing more Hello Kitty lately.  And instead of downloading another great business or coaching book I’ve really thought I should read, I downloaded “The Time Traveller’s Wife” from Audible this month.  Yes I’ve already read it twice in book format but I’m really enjoying listening to it performed this time around.

As for the working out. . . well. . . we’re all a work in progress – right?

What about you?

Comment below and let us know what would YOU be doing if you had enough time?
