Heard something interesting on the way into the office today… “If the enemy cannot make you evil, then he will make you busy… ”
Rather powerful if you think about it. As I think about the excuses I give for why I cannot do something – it generally stems from the fact that I am to busy. It is not always as obvious me until I hear something like this and say, yip… that is me.
Excuses may include:
I can’t I have to get so and so to soccer practice
I can’t my favorite show is on
I can’t I am working late
I can’t I have a mortgage to pay and two girls off to school soon
I can’t I need a new car
I can’t I need to look this up on the internet
I can’t I need to check my email
I can’t I don’t have enough time
I can’t I don’t have enough money
I can’t I don’t have enough energy
The list can go on and on. I don’t need to beat myself up over this, I just need to be more aware. I just need to make some tweaks to the daily life. Easy? No. Interesting? Yes.
