Hurry, hurry

TomK's picture

How many here find themselves like I do, hurrring all the time, seems like (well at least in my mind) I have 20 things to do and I feel like they need to be done NOW!


I just got over tax season and now busy with resale shop again and this needs worked on and the apt building needs painting and etc. etc.... HURRY, HURRY  don't be late...

Between my day job, my evening job - volunteer - answering phones for my son, the grandkids, etc. - I feel like I am always behind!


Re: Hurry, hurry


I remember trying to figure out what my mother, aunts and grandmothers were talking about when they kept saying that time just kept slipping along faster and faster when anyone knows that 60 sec=1 min., 60 min.= 1 hr.,24 hr= a day etc etc etc/

Now, that i am older i can believe it but am still amazed that  these equally viable trains of thought can exist side by side.

Re: Hurry, hurry

Sometimes we catch artificial urgency from the television, & sometimes, at work, either from a person, or from a plethera of tasks.  When we let it take control, fragmentation of our time occurs, so we not only feel all at 6's & 7's, but also start to ineffectively tread water, rather than accomplishing one thing at a time.  Good to take a step back to see things more clearly, so we can prioritize some, & let go of others----or at least put them off, in order to deal with just one thing at a time, rather than having them all come flying simultaneously.  In order to focus on just one, you almost have to force yourself into a tunnel vision mode, so as not to be distracted/overwhelmed by the rest  [& kids may well be part of the 'rest'].

Hi Susan, I live in Michigan most of the time...

Re: Hurry, hurry


 I have to agree with you that there seems to be too many things to accomplish and never enough time with which to do them. However, I learned long ago to prioritize or else suffer the stressful consequences. Where are you from, Tom? Susan
