Remember when we had more than enough time, resources and money to accomplish everything we planned and promised?
Every moment of every day is spent balancing conflicting demands
The requests can be endless. A presentation that needs to get out by 5pm. Returning a call from the school. The dentist appointment I keep putting off. Uneaten lunch on my desk. Over 100 unread emails.
Home or office, the demands keep coming.
I’ve been cursed. At least, I think so. And if I think so, that likely makes it true.
I recently returned from a two week vacation in Hawaii. Those of my fellow New Englanders that bore the brunt of our late February weather are already cursing me. Hold that thought.
We walked around in a warm haze for most of the trip, just happy to be away from blizzards and freezing temperatures. Having lived in Hawaii as a child, it was a great experience for me to share with my son, who rarely gets to see places where mom grew up.
We are all influenced differently, by our upbringings, culture, and surroundings
