2019 was the year I learned that it’s bs when you say “I don’t have time” for something – when you actually mean “It’s not a priority for me”. That’s a big difference. Once i realized that, I started to actively prioritize things (for example to spend more time with certain people that make me happy) and of course you “do have the time” once you shift priorities.
It’s so easy to get caught up in other people’s demands, your email inbox and to feel busy all the time – when one of the actual keys to balance and a healthy business / life / relationship is to say NO to the wrong things and YES to the right things. Take away this: If you don’t prioritize you’re own time – other people will do it for you. Don’t be that passive person that gets swept around.
