Time, time, time
"I wish I just had more time."
"I don’t know how I’m going to get everything done."
"I HAVE to do this task/project/request."
Have you found yourself muttering something like this within the past week?
You feel an almost constant tug. Muscles tighten, your breath is short and you feel your throat constrict.
When you’re doing one thing, you’re anxious about the ten other things you’re not doing.
Or you’re worried about what’s coming up next.
You often long for time for yourself…to do the things YOU really WANT to do.
Today, many of us live in an environment painted with the illusion of urgency.
Lots of people feel a sense of entitlement, to get/have YOUR attention, IMMEDIATELY.
I need you NOW!
Ding. You just got an “important” email.
Buzz. Your bff is texting you.
Chirp. Oh, you just got a DM on Twitter. #cool
Ring-Ring. Your biggest client is calling now and it’s an emergency.
Now you’re at a stoplight…better check your phone…something important is happening…
Do you have “FOMO” (fear of missing out)?
Your phone battery is sucked dry before noon each day because you’re constantly checking in?
