But Wait, There Is Enough Time

It is the beginning of the new swim cycle…or the last quadrant of this particular “quad” swim season. Either way it is time to reflect upon what we learned just recently and how that knowledge will shape our next 11 months.

At some point, sooner or later, the lament “I never have enough time” will be heard. It is a constant in our universe. So to put things in perspective we “borrowed” (it’s never plagiarized when credit is given?!) this from Steve Morsilli.
There are 168 hours in each week. if you go to school 5 days a week for 7 hours that uses up 35 of the 168. Moving right along we sleep 56 hours a week. We also could do 28 hours a week of homework – at least there is enough time for that. Figure on 30 minutes per meal and that’s another 10.5 hours.  Finally we include 15 hours of training and 3.5 hours of driving time. All this adds up to 148 hours. So there is still 20 hours of wiggle room, free time, call it what you will.
The message here is very simple. There is enough time to do what you want so long as you are organized and have your priorities set to match your goals.
That is up to you…which is very powerful. There are no “victims” – “I never have enough time” - among the successful.
See you poolside in no time at all!
Thanks again Steve…
