If you have time enough to complain about what’s not right, you have the time to generate ideas that would make things better. You also have time to sell people on your ideas. If you are going to invest your time working on a problem, then you may as well shoot for a positive outcome and do something about it.
If you have enough time to spend it on the Internet reading the news, checking sports scores, or hanging out on social media sites, you have the time necessary to nurture your dream clients. If you are going to spend time on the Internet, make it worthwhile by finding an idea that you can use to establish yourself as someone who thinks about business, and then send it to your dream clients.
If you have the time to go to a restaurant for lunch, then you have the time to take a client, prospect, or someone in your community to lunch. If you are going to eat anyway, you may as well develop or deepen a relationship.
If you have time to drive yourself across town to see a client, then you have time to listen to an audio book or podcast that will help you improve some aspect of your life. If you are spending time in the car, you might as well make that car your private university on wheels and give yourself and education.
If you have time to watch more than an hour of television, then you have time to read a book. And if you have time to read a book (and you do), then you have time to take notes so that you can apply what you are reading to some aspect of your life. You also have time to put those notes into some format you can use to teach others and massively strengthen your learning.
If you have time to complain about not having enough time, then you have time to plan your week. If you are going to focus on the time you believe you don’t have, you might as well make it productive and develop a plan to deal with all of your commitments.
You have enough time.
