Rushing through life
There’s always a next meeting. There’s always a next call. There’s always a next goal to reach. You are never good enough.
The day becomes a rushed succession of events.
You wake up while thinking about getting ready for work.
You rush through breakfast while thinking about your 9am call.
You do your call thinking about the next one.
You end your day thinking about how to maximize the short free time you have.
You try to enjoy that freedom, but you cannot stop thinking about ending on time so you get some sleep.
You try to sleep, but you cannot stop thinking about waking up.
Some morning, you wake up and realize the infinite cycle you are in.
And that’s the day you start taking your life back.
