It doesn’t have to be huge, but it does have to be consistent and time is not a valid excuse.
Focus your attention and take action on the important things first.

Have you heard the story about the rocks, pebbles and sand (and wine)? Here is a link to one version of it. If you pour sand, then pebbles then rocks into a jar, they won’t fit, but if you put the rocks in first (the most important parts of your life), then the pebbles (those other necessary things) and then the sand (all that minutia of life, that may or may not have to be done) they will all fit. And, of course, after that there is always room for a glass of wine.
The most successful people take action every day to move themselves forward. If you focus first on what it important, you can fit the rest in.
I have rearranged my schedule so that I can spend the first few hours of the day working on the Business Owners Success Club, the afternoon is for Crystal Clear Bookkeeping Ltd and the weekends are for the family. There are regularly scheduled meetings for the Library project. I make a point of walking to my office as often as I can, I have lunch with friends a couple of times a month and I read every night before sleep – those are for me.
Everything else can get fitted in and around those rocks.
