‘You Don’t Find Time. You Make It.’

‘You Don’t Find Time. You Make It.’

Trying to find the time to work on passion projects is always difficult. In the above quote, Shawn Blanc suggests that one step to doing so is to alter your outlook a little.

The idea that you’ll passively just find time throughout the day is as silly as it sounds, and while this is just semantics, it’s still a mindset we all take. Blanc adds a little flavour to the above quote to show off the absurdity of it all:

Many of us act as if we are trying to find the time. We are looking around, hoping there may be an hour or two just lying there not being spent.

So, next time you’re looking for that extra hour in your day to work on a passion project, just go ahead and cancel something less important and get to work.
