We live in a time of 'hurry sickness'. 'Busy' has become a competitive sport - and it's a sport with no winners.
But somewhere, underneath all of this hard slog, there are the things we really want to do. The things that bring us joy and give our lives meaning. More often than not, the only thing standing between us and getting on with those things is ourselves. Our lives don't have to be as complicated as we make them. Through stories, theories and practical exercises, I Don't Have Time explores 50 excuses we make that keep us from getting on with the things that really matter to us.
These are the excuses that hold us back in our health and wellbeing, our careers, relationships, finances, home environments, personal development and recreation. Using humour, anecdotes, research into productivity and Emma and Audrey's proven 'My 15 Minutes' approach, this is a practical guide to ditching overwhelm and making progress in all the areas that matter most. It flips the notion that we need great swathes of time to get ahead with things, instead encouraging us to use the nooks and crannies in our day to achieve big things over time.
