When you clench your fist, no one can put anything in your hand, nor can your hand pick up anything.

Keep on going

There never seems to be enough time to do all the things that need to be done. Get busy doing them anyway. And while you’re at it, throw in a few things you truly want to do, along with all those things you need to do. Then forget about how much time you do or do not have, and just start making use of that time.

What will happen if you don’t get it all done? What will happen is that you’ll get some of it done. And that’s infinitely preferable to sitting around worrying that there’s not enough time. Do what you can with the time you have and you’ll be making plenty of progress.

When you’re short on time, your best strategy is to go ahead and do what needs to be done. Putting it off until later, until it seems that there will be more time, will end up using even more of that precious time.

Use your time to do, rather than looking for time to use. Time keeps on coming, so fill it with action and keep on going.
