Do you ever think about how there aren’t enough hours in the day to finish all the things that you want to do? That you need to do? Wouldn’t it be nice if there were more than 24 hours in a day? Surely that would solve everything right?
Well not really. The hours in a day are a man-made concept to help measure the passing of time. Even if we added more hours in the day, that would not change the physical amount of time the Earth rotates on its axis to produce day and night.
In that case one obvious fix for this problem would be to reduce the number of todos in your life. Stop overloading your day with stuff that needs to be done and stuff that you want to do. But what can you cut out?
You can’t cut your day job. Not really. Why not? Because how else are you going to get money to pay for the necessaties of life? Food, rent, bills, they need to be taken care of. And work takes up about 8 hours of one person’s life.
What about your health? Surely you don’t need to go to the gym to exercise? Or even spend a few hours a week doing exercise right? Actually, there are plenty of studies to show that exercise is vital for a whole variety of things. From making sure that you don’t have any physical ailments to ensuring that your mind is a sane as it possibly can be.
Well perhaps you don’t need to go out as much as you’ve been going recently. Cut back on the socialising. The trouble with that idea is that potenitally you lose a variety of things. From being able to interact with another human being to maintaining relations between friends, family and spouses. These relations are important to maintain for reasons including mental wellbeing, favours to be given back and forth and, in relation to ones spouses, relieving of sexual tensions following by the snuggles. Who would want to give that up?? So those relations need time dedicated for maintanence.
If you’re planning on dedicating your time on external things like work, physical fitness and other people, then perhaps you could cut back on personal projects. Who needs a hobby right? Why bothering to challenge yourself? Because it help to build yourself up as a person. You develop personal skills and ideas that can take you to places and produce opporunities that would not have been present if you had not challenged yourself beyond your comfort zone. People are capable of great things if they are willing to try and are prepared to fail, because the reward of success can be immeasurable and worth wild.
That’s a lot of things to get done and we are short of hours in a day. What about sleep? Who has time to sleep? We spend between 6 to 8 hours a day dedicated to sleep, perhaps we can reduce the hours of sleep a person does. You’ll have plenty of time to sleep when your dead blah blah blah. However there are various scientific evidence stating that sleep is important. It helps to clear and organise your mind, it helps to maintain your health and well being and lack of sleep has been link to gaining weight. We can’t have that now can we? I mean, who’s going to have sex with an overweight person that can barely string a sentence together due to the huge, black bags under their eyes? So we have to keep the sleeping in.
So with all those things to keep in mind… where am I going to find the time to do all these things that I want to do in life? When am I going to find the time to do all these extra things that I want to do in my life outside the day-to-day routine of working, exercising, socialising, blogging, 101 things in 1001 days-ing, pet projecting, attending club meeting, and sleeping?
…. I guess I could spend less hours watching stuff on YouTube.
