No time? Write it down!

I read this awesome idea at reddit the other day and I wanted to share it with you:

Write down the things you wish you could do when you have no time, then do those things when you’re bored.

As simple as that.

We all know the feeling of daily stress and having a lot on our minds. Often the best ideas come at the worst times and sometimes we just postpone them mentally until we forget. The next time we think of them we are likely to be in another stressful situation without much time on our hands.

On the other hand there are times when we sit around, have nothing much to do and think about what we could possibly do (other than watching TV, playing videogames or any other leisure activity). This will be the time when your new To-Do-List comes in. It is different than your typical To-Do-List, because it is not a list of things that you have to do right now, but a list of things that you would love to do “if you got time to do it”. So basically every time you will look at the list, you will have a great pool of ideas to work on.

Typical entries on such a list could be things like “Write a letter to my grandparents” or “Get started on learning some coding language”

Be careful though not to write down idea after idea without ever acting on them. Nothing is more frustrating than a long and meaningless To-Do-List without anything actually crossed out.

That’s it for today, I hope some of you think of this idea as highly as I do.

Good luck with your lists!

Go!

No such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time, no such thing as down time.

All you got is life time.

Go.

Henry Rollins

Okay, let’s get real.

Every day has 24 hours. 24 hours that you can use however you please. You decide what you want out of this life and you decide what you do with your time.

You have the same amount of time as everyone else has. If you find yourself lacking time for something it is not because of little time but because of poor priorities!

As long as you don’t get your priorities straight and develop a bit of discipline, you will wade through days and weeks, not doing anything really. Ask yourself what you want out of your life and start going for it!
