I have posted consistently for 10 weeks now and I am extremely proud of myself. In this week’s blog post I choose to share one of the things that I decided to do so as to be and stay consistent!
It is always so easy to be busy to the point of making excuses. I am learning that priorities find time – no matter how busy one is, we will always create time for the things we prioritize. This year I decided to be consistent in writing and publishing blog posts – I decided to stop making excuses and finding reasons that made me validate my inconsistency. Sometimes this means waking up earlier to prepare a post before I start my work day, sometimes it means sleeping late – but the beauty is the fulfillment I have found in my consistency.
I simply stopped making excuses and started making time. It is not easy, it is not always fulfilling – but I love that it is right. One of the things I have always picked from motivational speakers and people who are successful (in different perspectives) is how they choose to spend their day – everyone’s day has 24 hours (subtract the number of hours you spend sleeping). Based on this argument there is “time” the difference in how others are able to achieve more or be more productive – is how they divide and choose to spend their time. It is always easy to make excuses (I mean I also do it so much) – but it is not right!
This year I decided that I will prioritize things and people in my life and make time – so far I am doing well and like I mentioned earlier I love the self-fulfillment. I have been able to prove that I can do it and do it well – and this shift happened when I stopped making excuses and started creating time for it! I have also been very aware of the people around me (that I know personally and just on social media) that juggle a lot more than I do – but manage to do it well. And listening to them and following their stories, I have come to realize that it is all about priorities.
I urge you to try this and see how it will impact your life! Stay true to yourself, and stop making excuses – from the small ones to the big ones, stop! The more you do it, the more natural it becomes and eventually you will not have room for excuses!
Thanks for reading and happy pre-Friday!
