The next time you think it is, think again.
I sit in meetings, facilitate training, and walk through public places, and it is all the same. The minute someone’s phone beeps or vibrates with a text or email notification, they seem compelled to check and see what is going on. This compulsion leads to a lack of focus and productivity, and well, it makes me think of today’s quotation.
“Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important.” - Natalie Goldberg, writer and artist
