For most people finding time is probably the biggest problem. For those who work and have families free time is at a premium.

It could be argued that it is a question of priorities rather than time, but people do have obligations and responsibilities towards their families.

For most people, work including travel probably takes at least 10 hours each day. Sleeping, eating, washing, dressing etc. probably take at least another 10 hours. Then there is all the shopping, home repairs, housework, gardening and other unavoidable calls on everyone's time. This leaves perhaps 3 hours each day of free time for family life, relaxing and spiritual effort. Therefore even if someone is only able to give 30 minutes a day or so to meditation it is still often a commendable effort.

Occasionally we may find someone boasting of how they spent 10 hours a day practicing Kriya while still working full time etc. A little common sense would show that there are simply not enough hours in a day for such egotistical claims to be taken seriously.
