I know I should…but I don’t have the time

This morning on my way to work, I found myself thinking, I know I should be writing but I don’t have the time.  I took a step back, and really thought about what I had thought.

The lie is that I don’t have the time to do those things that I need to do:  exercise, plan my days, plan my meals, write, spend time with friends.  You get the picture. 

The truth of the matter is that if I exercised some time management skills, those which I claim to have, that I have a whole lot of extra time.  How many hours do I spend looking at facebook, adding friends, tending to gardens “for a good cause,” watching television…you get the idea. 

What I lack is not time but discipline.  If I truly want to write the next great American novel, or even something that people might read, I have to discipline myself to do what needs to be done to accomplish that goal. 

So, here’s to discipline.  I’ve still not written out the goals, vision, plan for my life.  I am on vacation next week, so I will take some time away from the pack to write.
