Do you feel like you never have any free time? You’re already busy and you can’t imagine how you have any extra time to exercise, work on a side hustle, read, or have a morning routine.

Every day you feel busy, but you also feel like you’re not getting anything productive done.

You just wish you had more time.

What you have to understand is that you’re not going to suddenly have free time. Even if you do find yourself with free time, you’re going to fill it with something easy like checking Facebook, watching TV, or doing unproductive busy work.

If that is you, you have to approach it a different way.

I’ve learned that if I wanted to get anything done, I had to make time for it. It had to be done around the same time every day so that I wouldn’t question when i do it.

Because when you come home from a long day at work, have dinner with the family, and put the kids to bed you’re going to be exhausted. When faced with what to do, it’s going to be so easy to turn on the TV and find something to watch.

However if you’ve scheduled that time to work on your side hustle for an hour, then that’s what you have to stick with. That is your time and it’s your choice what you’re going to do.

I talk more about why it’s important to make time to get things done and not rely on being motivated.

Are you a patient person? Are you willing to wait an hour for your dinner to be cooked and come out? Do you love sitting in traffic jams and having it take 30 minutes to get somewhere that normally takes 5 minutes?

We don’t like to wait. We want to get to where we’re going faster. We want our internet to be fast. We order food and want it out as soon as possible.

When I order a package from Amazon.com, waiting more than 2 days is too long.

This is how our expectations are, but when we expect changes to happen to ourselves and our life situations just as quick, we become disappointed. If it doesn’t happen as quickly as we hope, we give up.

What you need more of in 2017 isn’t knowledge, skills, hard work, or resources. All those are important, but what you need first is patience. If you don’t have patience then you will never finish what you start. You will always start and give up too soon.

In today’s episode I talk more about the importance of patience and why you need more of this in 2017.

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a great 2016 and definitley hope you have an even better 2017.

If you’re like most people you’re thinking about what you want to change and improve this year. You make a mental note of it.

I used to do this, but I have stopped making New Year’s resolutions since 2011.

The simple reason was it wasn’t working. I would always fail. I would always end up making the same ones year after year. If it wasn’t working at all, then I decided to not waste my time making them.

Since I’ve stopped making them, I’ve seen huge changes in my personal and business life.

In today’s podcast I’m going to share why I don’t believe in resolutions and give you suggestions on how to approach making change this year.

Imagine if you had a square block and you’re trying to fit it into a round hole. The size of the hole is roughly the same size of the block. You keep trying to push it in, but of course it doesn’t go in. You try to put it in from a different angle. You think maybe a different side will work. Still it doesn’t go in.

You push it really hard through thinking the force will squeeze the cube inside the round hole. Doesn’t help at all.

How long would it take for the square block to finally go through the round hole? It’ll never go in the way it is.

This is what we try to do when we try to get the result we want. We try to force our way in. We keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results. We think, somehow, that by the power of a miracle the block will go right in.

That’s gotta stop.

Let’s go back to the example. How can you fit the square block into the round hole? You have to try a different way.

So you get some tools and cut away the corners. You try to fit it in and it’s better but still not going in. So you keep chipping away at the block until it finally fits into the round hole.

In today’s episode, I talk about how valuable this advice was to me and how to apply it to your own life.

For most of my adult life, I have never been one to wake up early. I worked in the restaurant business which didn’t mean 9-5. For me it meant, 11-11. 

So I never needed to get up early. That was one of the only things I liked about my job.

When I began working for myself, the habit of waking up late stayed with me. I didn’t like it though.

I always felt my mornings went by so quickly. I would get up around 9-10am. I’d do unproductive things and next thing I know it’s lunch time. The days just went by so fast.

I wanted to get up earlier so I’d have more time for myself. I didn’t want to waste my mornings.

That was easier said than done.

I tried setting my alarm earlier but all I’d do is immmediately turn it off. When I was able to get up earlier, I’d be so tired all day until I took a nap.

So I’d go back to my old ways and constantly complain about it to my wife.

Last year, I decided to finally do something about it. I was tired of hearing myself complain. I wanted to see what I need to do to wake up earlier and feel more awake when I did.

Six months later, I’ve been able to stick to a habit of waking up earlier. Now I wake up around 7am most days without an alarm clock. I don’t wake up and feel groggy all morning either.

In today’s podcast episode, I would like to share some practical steps that I have used that have helped me wake up earlier and feel more awake.

If you’ve been wanting to wake up earlier to have more free time in your day, you will enjoy this episode.

I know you are interested in personal development. That’s why you are here, but what have you done with what you have learned?

Too many people fall into the trap of being fans of personal development, but they never do anything with what they learn.

All they do is consume content through articles, books, and podcasts.

Then they wonder why they’re still stuck in life.

It’s easy to hear advice that I share here at Get Busy Living. It’s harder to take that advice and apply it to your life. Knowledge isn’t enough.

You should have the attitude that you’re conducting experiements. You’re taking something you’ve learned and you’re going to try it for yourself. That’s the only way to know if it’ll work for you.

If that way doesn’t work, then find another way and experiment.

Just like there are countless ways to exercise and too many to name eating plans to lose weight. There are countless ways to improve your life. But what works for someone may not work for you.

That’s how you have to view personal development.

Find what works for you through experiementing.
