Where does the time go?

I'm starting to wonder if half the reason we don't follow our dreams is simply, "time flies."

We are all so overwhelmed with deadlines at work, kids to taxi, and piles of laundry we don't find any time left over for our dreams.

I recently started working-out with a personal trainer. I faithfully go twice a week. Every Wednesday and every Friday I show up at his door-step waiting for his next grand idea of torture. (Yes, torture is the right word.)

I show up because it's scheduled. It's planned, part of my day. I know at 5:00 on Wednesday he is expecting me. Therefore, I always show up. But here's the interesting part. He went out of town for a week. And during that week, I couldn't find the time to work out.

What changed? I had been working out with him twice a week for a few months. Now the 1 week he is gone, I couldn't seem to find the time.

Somehow because he was gone it was no longer part of my plan. And I let the week slip away (guilt.)

I wonder how often we all let the week slip away.

Do you have a dream? Do you want to lose 10 pounds, start a business, find love? Are you taking steps each week to achieve your goals and dreams?

Schedule it in, find time, from 5-6 on Wednesday, I'm going to .... (fill in the blank).

Take the first step. Each week, each day, do something to follow your goals and dreams. You will reach them before you know it. But the very first step is make it a priority, find the time, schedule it in.

Good luck!
