One of the things people often ask me is “where do I find the time”?:
My clock is the same as everybody’s else. My days only have 24 hours – 8 or 9 of those are spent sleeping! Yet, I find the time to fulfill my dreams simply because I make time for it. And, yes not having kids (yet) helps! I’m very conscious that things will most likely change once I have a baby, and that’s why I decided to launch Europe in a Box now rather than later.
Finding the time – or I prefer to say “making time” – is often a matter of organisation and prioritisation. I use every bit of time that becomes available – whether it’s on the train to work or taking a shower at the gym, I’m always thinking about what I want to accomplish that day or even that week, about what products I want to include in my next box, about a limited edition box, or about the emails I get from readers of my blog.
There are things that I have to sacrifice to make time for running Europe in a Box while working full-time. I don’t go out as often as I would like to. I don’t spend time with family – they are 16,000 km away anyway. I don’t go to the gym as often as I should (maybe I’m just being a little lazy). I never watch TV!
Making time for the important things in life is a real challenge and it’s also something very personal because what is important to you may seem totally superficial to someone else and vice versa.
The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.- Stephen R. Covey
