Busy or effective?

"I haven't got time" is a common excuse, along with "I'm too busy".

Both are excuses for poor time (or self) management. Sorry but it's true.

Once you change your language and understand the issue, you can fix the problem - become more organised, get more stuff done.

If I hear myself using these excuses, I reframe it in my mind. I now say "I haven't prioritised it".

When I told my son "I haven't got time", he said "Really? I thought everyone got 24 hours each day."

How are you investing your 24 hours? Are you busy or are you effective?
