Never Enough Time

by Chris McGinty of

You know what fascinates me?
People who actually seem to have time to get things done and still manage to
find time to “waste” are very fascinating. How do they do it? I don’t know. Do
you know? I always seem to have too much to do and not enough time to tackle it
all. I wonder sometimes if maybe I don’t know how to cut items from my To Do
List. Is it because I don’t focus on one thing at a time? They say that we all
have the same 24 hours a day, but you know what? I don’t think we do have the
same 24 hours a day. We each have 24 hours a day, but I don’t think they’re the

I’ll probably get into that concept
later when I have the time to explain it properly, but for now I have less than
an hour to write this blog post and post it. I actually have some blog posts
that are written and ready to go, but since I have a topic in mind, I’d like to
write something instead of using up my reserve.
I do actually have priority items
listed as daily habits, and then I have a separate To Do List for things to get
to when I have extra time. The problem is that I either have too many daily
items or not enough time to do a reasonable list of daily items. I’m never
really sure which it is.
I think that ongoing activities
are the toughest part of a To Do List. You get it done one day, and it’s there
again the next day. It starts to feel like a lack of progress after a while.
You have to start saying things like, “You’re making progress; it’s just
subtle.” and “If you keep writing the blog eventually someone will read it.”
When you spend the large bulk of your time doing ongoing activities, your To Do
List seems very similar from day to day. I do feel like this is the right move,
but I have to keep reminding myself that it is the right move.
Chris McGinty may very well have
written this blog out of frustration and a lack of time before work.
