‘I am always stressed, but I don’t have the time to relax.’
‘I know I need to exercise more, but I don’t have the time for it.’
‘I wish I had the time to sleep for 8 hours everyday.’
A chronic lack of time is a vicious disease that is self-perpetrating. It is also contagious. Busyness spreads from partner to partner, from boss to subordinate, from customer to support executive.
The inability to spare time for the essential is a disease that often goes undiagnosed. The cure is to surgically remove parts of our schedule that are non-essential.
