“There’s just not enough hours in a day” is a myth. That phrase is not true and I don’t ever want to hear you say it again.
People who use that phrase have just identified themselves as poor planners and poor prioritizers. Face it. Everybody has 24 hours in their day. No one has anymore than anyone else. God saw it fit to put the same amount of time equal for every person and figured that between sunrise and sunset should be sufficient time to call “one day.” If you are needing “more hours in your day” that means one of two things.
1. You have piled on too many activities to your life. (Poor Planning) It means that everything that you have signed up to do is not necessary and maybe you shouldn’t be involved in everything you are doing. It may also mean that since you are overextended that you are doing a mediocre job at each thing anyhow.
2. You aren’t doing the things you SHOULD be doing WHEN you should be doing them. (Poor Priorities) You are watching TV when you should be doing laundary or you are on Facebook when you should be looking for a job or you are doing work when you should be spending time with your wife and kids. You are spending time with the family when you should be resting.
Davidism #17 – There’s more than enough hours in a day. Use them wisely.
