I was up playing card games with family last night until almost 3. I slept until after noon, and didn’t rise until almost 2.
I write this because sometime in the future I’ll be flipping through these archives while in a state of anxiety, wishing life would slow down. Future self, I don’t “have time” to ignore the laundry and the chores and the mounds of to-do items for work. But today, I took the time to stop.
And having done so, I’m filled with readiness to do so many things… I get things done faster when I’m ready to do things than when I have to.
So, future self, stop. You’ll likely say you don’t have time, or someone will be angry, or you will be angry. I understand how important you think the things you doing are. But like a flywheel, you build momentum slowly when you need to keep running for a long time.
Stop for a day.
