We all get the same 24 hours in a day and yet it always seems there isn’t enough time to do it all. I hear it all the time: “I don’t have time to do _______”. I get it, it’s hard to fit it all in but let me share my secret with you; I get up and hustle before everyone is awake. Do I love early mornings, not really. Some days I hate that my alarm goes off at 4AM but is it worth it to get closer to my dream, YES!!
I read this amazing book by Jon Acuff called Start and he talked about being selfish at 5AM. It’s okay to be selfish with your time, you just have to choose the right time to be selfish. He says, “The point is you can carve out time in your day and claim it, if you’re willing to hustle” He goes on to say, “If your dream isn’t worth thirty minutes, you’ve either got the wrong dream or you’re just pretending you have one. If the minimum you’re willing to pay in order to be awesome is less than thirty minutes, you’d better go back to average. Nobody gets up early on the road to average”
Maybe you need to be selfish at a different time of the day, it could be late at night or during nap time. The point is that we all have a little time to carve out if we’re willing to hustle. Dreams are worth pursuing and if you’re not taking time to work towards them, how will they every come true?
Whats your dream and are you actively working towards it? I challenge you to be selfish with your time and find 30 minutes to really go for it!
