It isn’t like I have a lot of it, you know? So when I sit down with my brain and mine it for words, that is time that I am not using to complete another task. That is critical time. And I know we all feel it.
I GET IT. There is never time for anything. Basic existence uses all 24 hours a day and forever leaves me needing more hours. Most days, I don’t sleep enough. I don’t eat on a schedule. I’m just hanging on for the ride and putting out the fire that seems the most insistent.
I always thought that the right thing to do was to go to college, get a good job to pay off college, and try to climb the ladder. If I was smart enough, I would be at the top eventually. If I worked hard enough, I would get whatever job I wanted to get. This may sound familiar. It’s how most of us grew up.
