Space and Time

I rarely run into someone that is not frazzled. Because our technology and tools are so efficient, the amount of information hitting us is bewildering.

Get more customers, get more problems.

Get more emails, have more work to respond.

The signal to noise ratio is a real problem. When you do address the signals, you feel depleted of attention and energy.

Each day can feel like survival when it comes to squeezing out results that matter.

I find that taking space and time to think, relax and let go does wonders for staying engaged. I don’t want to be frazzled. I want to be in the moment and of the highest value to others. And those opportunities keep happening relentlessly regardless of our energy or emotions.

If your days are running into months, build in time for yourself regularly and daily. The investment and habit are not only necessary but nourishing.

The work keeps coming. The problems never stop. But, you don’t have to simply be a punching bag.

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” – Mark Twain
