Last night, I had the honor of taking Trevor Heinrich‘s Senior pics, and it was a lot of fun 🙂
As we were driving into Lancaster City, we began talking about how busy he was, and the things he was spending his time doing. As we were talking I was reminded of a class we took in my first year of Gettysburg Master’s Commission with Jason Fitch.
I remember talking about the excuse “I didn’t have time”. Really, that is the worst excuse you could ever use. Because you have the same amount of hours in your day as The President of The United States. The difference is how you manage that time. He told us about how we make time for the things that are important to us. So the better thing to say is “I didn’t make time for it” or “It wasn’t a high enough priority for me to do that.”
And that’s ok.
When it comes down to it, time management is pretty much the same thing as priority management. Show me your priorities (and look honestly at them) and I’ll show you where you spend your time. For Trevor, he had a lot he was doing, but they were important, so while sometimes he needs to make time for himself, he’s ok with being on the go a lot, because these things are important to him.
What about you? What are your priorities? Where do you spend your time?
