What "I don't have time" really means.
When someone explains why they didn't do something, one of the most common reasons is "I don't have time."
And it's a good reason. Everyone understands. Everyone is busy. No-one has time.
Can't get to the gym? No time for that either.
No one holds you to account when the reason is "I don't have time." YOU don't hold you to account when you say to yourself "Why aren't I doing that important thing? Well I don't have time of course." Everyone understands.
So next time you hear someone say "I don't have time", convert those words to "All the other things in my life are higher priority than that activity and that's why I didn't do it.".
There's the truth - everyone has time, it's just a question of whether they are willing to make it a high enough priority to actually do.
