That was a pretty funny article, but it does tackle a pretty prevalent issue. I wonder what percentage of people in our western society actually feel this way -- "There's no time!" - "There are so many things I HAVE TO GET DONE!"

I was one of those people until about 4 years ago. Luckily, I got laid off and took that as a sign that I needed a change in direction. It wasn't easy to switch to something different, but I got it done and am much, much happier. I also turned off the TV and ignored social media, and suddenly the list of things that I HAD to get done had shrunk and I realized that I had the time to do stuff I actually wanted to do.

It's very liberating. Big Grin

Ironically, I’m retired and still have trouble managing my time. I read through the blog post - it was a good read - but felt pressed for time doing so. Wisdom, where are you?  Smile

Started to read the article and stopped one paragraph in to the story because I figured out why he has no time.

"Your alarm wakes you up at 9:00 a.m. You eat, make coffee, shower, shave, and are ready for work by ten. You have an average thirty minute commute to your office. It’s now ten thirty. "

You get to work at 10:30 AM?  You don't get up until 9 AM?  Maybe he could adult a little and get up earlier.

By 7:00 AM I am at my desk after haven ridden 17 miles to work on my bike.  Home by 5:30 PM and have a big chunk of the evening to get stuff done.  Cut the cable and don't watch TV and you gain even more time.  Focus on what is important and forget the rest.  

Too many people create a false sense of drama by trying to do too much.  The "soccer mom" the spends endless hours carting their kids to every activity known to man but then complain they don't have any time.  Say no to your kid - it ain't going to hurt them and then they won't grow up writing articles about how the have to cook and clean dishes but don't have time to have fun.   Confused2

At one job, we used to get into work sometime between 8 and 11am, usually closer to 11. We would then work 12-14 hours, and occasionally 16 hours, seven days a week. Even then, I had enough time to cook, do laundry, etc. The dude who wrote that article is obviously a dufus who needs to get his #### together. He has 24 hours per day, the same as everyone else, and apparently has enough time to complain.

"I don't have time" usually means "It is not high on my priorities list", and sometimes "I am disorganized and/or inefficient".
