Thoughts about being impatient, “faster is not always better…”
I felt as though I was talking to myself with my thoughts, the reality is I am. For some reasons it’s been my habit to race with time with anything I do, yes to me everything is urgent.
“Life moves so fast. You gotta document it sometimes.”
Therefore these thoughts …
A few things are genuinely urgent. Most things are not.
Being more impatient does not make you more important. In fact, when you rush dramatically through life you miss out on much of its richness.
Just because you can do something quickly does not mean that’s the best way. Just because you can dispatch an instant communication does not mean you should avoid a long conversation.
Sure, you want to be efficient. Of course, you seek to get the most value out of every moment.
But your purpose is not to merely check off activities on your list. Your deeper purpose is to add meaningful substance by investing yourself in life.
Take a long, slow breath and remind yourself that faster is not always better. Give your moments the time they deserve, and add new richness to your life instead of more stress.
