This is the second of a series of tips on how to handle crazy busy and not get caught up in the ‘fear’ of failing to handle it, and the resulting stress chemicals.
Second tip: Seek wisdom in the gaps
Some philosophies encourage you to look at the gaps between things, to let the space that surrounds something give it meaning.
What if there were no gaps, and each thing merged into the next? Would any of it have meaning?
Now, look at your schedule for the day. Are there gaps where you can reflect, consider consequences, plan actions and derive real meaning from your activities?
Does your day have any punctuation marks? Or is does it just run on like an endless sentence with words tumbling over each other in an aimless heap?
Luckily, we can change our schedule and take a step back to insert gaps, and therefore meaning, into our day.
Go ahead… create some wisdom gaps in your day… then use them wisely 🙂
My best wishes, Paul
