This is an interesting quote and probably something we have all said at one time or another. I think we say “I don’t have time” to be polite. Words and truth are important and while we may be busy and our time may be limited it’s what we say that matters. Instead of ” I don’t have time” how about “I’m not able to do that right now but let me see where I can fit that in.” If you really don’t want to do something, the truth is always best.
