Why do people keep asking, “how do you find the time to…” [fill in the blank]? Lately, the question’s been in relation to social media, but I’ve heard it in a lot of business contexts over the years.

I don’t have a time turner, so I haven’t figured out yet how to be in two places at once.

News flash — I don’t find the time, I make the time. It’s all about prioritizing. Family and friends, client work, business development, networking, learning, and so forth. I can’t tell you how to organize the 24 hours in your day, but I can tell you there’s no magic formula.

So next time someone asks you how you find the time, remind them it’s all about setting priorities.
