How to Overcome the “There’s Never Any Time” Issue.

If you’re anything like me, you loved the show “Saved By the Bell” at some point in your life. I am SURE the writers or actors never thought bits of it would stick with us well into our adulthoods, but I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve thought, “No time! There’s never any time!” which is of course followed by, “I’m so excited! I’m so excited! I’m so — scared!”

Don’t even act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.

And of course we know Jessie went on to be a showgirl, so either she worked out her time issues or didn’t work out her daddy issues. Ha. Ha ha. Ha.

Our struggles with the constraints of time are, well, timeless. We all at some point in our lives have felt that “there’s never any time” – but how do we get past that and become productive? Right now my answer lies somewhere between “find a way to stop time” and “just pour another glass of wine, honey – it’ll be ok” so clearly I am not the Zack Morris in this situation.

I find that I am further challenged when I have a series of unexpected interruptions to my routine and that it takes me way too long to recover and get back to normal. What is ever more frustrating is that I used to be SO organized and on top of things. I’m considering coining a new phrase, “When life gives you interruptions, make interruptionade” whereas “Interruptionade” is one part rum, two parts lemonade. Or maybe flip that depending on your day.

Point of the story: I am NO HELP here.

Do you have this problem, too? Or have you found the magical answer I am looking for?

Please. Don’t make me be Jessie Spano. (Any more than I already am, ahem.)

    Best show of all time!!! I think the answer is to clone yourself, yep I have no real answer either. Knowing others have the same issue helps though.
    Love your blog!!!

  2. All for you.

  3. I tried to buy the “I’m so excited…I’m so scared!” t-shirt online ages ago, but it was continually sold out. Your post has re-fanned the flames. I will have that t-shirt!
