The thing is we can do it anytime. Genuinely busy or not. We can drop down literally everything and do whatever we want to, even in short bursts.
Time is a precious ally and we all have it. The difference lies, however, on how much we value or squander time. It’s easy to waste much of it on passivity. But it’s surprisingly easy to make it count, too.
We can take back now. Every time we choose to be intentional of what we do, of what we bring into our lives, we take back chunks of our humanity. Every time we become clear of what’s going to make us truly satisfied, we save ourselves from pocket holes, vices, and insanity.
In whatever sphere we are now, whatever hopes we dream for ourselves, we can start making our own map. We can break free from rationalizations, doubts, and fears. But only if we choose to.
We can do anything at any given moment, and relive those times where we are laser-beam- focused (i.e. mono-tasking) on something real and interesting. We can literally make something incredible out of scratch.
We can take it easy and begin: We can jot down ideas for a start-up, cook that nebulous recipe in our head, write that peculiar narrative, draw that charming character, or speak that strange language.
All it takes is that we discern and jettison those that don’t add value and focus on what does. We can make space and curate wonders which light us up and stir us forward – perhaps evolving in ways we’d never thought possible.
