So I was talking with my friend Tihomir – also co-host of IT Serbia Podcast – about the fact that it’s really getting harder and harder to find time to do an episode. I mean we always have very good excuses, really. But then he shared this link with me and I have to say this guy Grant Cardone is pretty smart when saying that:
If you’re making excuses you are wasting time.
This is definitely something to think about, right? I am sure many of us “loose time” from time to time and actually end up doing nothing (useful) for hours, sometimes even days, although I highly doubt generally busy people can be bored for days.
There’s a saying in my country – although I’m pretty sure it’s not limited to Serbia – that really hits me as hard as the previous one:
If you don’t have anything to do, work on yourself.
Wow, right? Really a motivational quote to help us avoid or obliterate procrastination. Although Mr. Cardone claims it took a lot of time for him to realize that making excuses really hides the fact that he was wasting time I think we all actually know it but are rather reluctant to think about it from time to time.
Here’s another fantastic saying from Serbia:
Who doesn’t want to do it finds a reason, who wants to do it finds a way.
Simply replace “reason” with excuse and there you go – it’s a pretty wise saying.
So, let’s go ahead and work on ourselves, our neighbors, communities, cities, countries, nations and…well… the world really 🙂 And let’s avoid making excuses since they could very well mean we’re just wasting time!
