Be Resourceful

We never lack resources just resourcefulness. The next time you think you don’t have enough time to do something, just consider how much time you spent thinking instead of doing. There is always enough time, money or skills available if you are willing to put aside excuses.

I always am at my best when I am super busy. Working on a bunch of challenging projects at work, training for an Ironman Triathlon, doing a yoga training or traveling. Having a lot going on forces me to be more resourceful with my time, money, energy and skills. It takes the slack out of life and helps me to operate in a way that is far more efficient and effective. I find that this way of being carries over to the more relaxed periods in my life as well. I’m able to get more done in less time and spent the extra resources on relaxation!

Next time you think that you don’t have the means to get something done… try being more resourceful. Think about places in your life where you could save time and money. Think about people you know that could help you out with needed skills and resources. Most importantly, stop telling yourself that you don’t have enough, and start telling yourself that you have more than enough – and the way forward will make itself known.

  1. this is so true: the busier you are do the more thing you accomplish. Sounds absurd, but it is so true!

  2. I agree. Keeping busy is just conducive to efficiency. It’s probably because energy begets energy, as they say, and it’s just a matter of getting out of the rut you’re in to appreciate this.
