Be an adult. Do adult things. Be responsible. Be courageous.
There is a dichotomy, a tug-of-war, between our endless streams of input, input from news, internet, self declared responsibilities and the amount of free space in which to gain insight, deeply think, learn, relate with those around us. If could measuring how much time we spend engaged with these activities on a simple balance scale, our endless streams on one side and the amount of free space we allow ourselves on the other, we’d see that the balance was almost completely on the endless streams side. Yet if we could weight the balance comparing the value to our life. we see the opposite. Most value comes from free space.
Two questions to ask:
How much free space do I have scheduled?
Am I being picky about the streams of input I choose to engage with?
Hope you have an awesome day!
