Anybody remember the song “I’m In A Hurry to Get Things Done”? The internet tells me this song came out in 1992. The Band Alabama sang it. It’s a pretty good song. If you aren’t familiar, I recommend you go to look it up and give it a listen. This week I was reminded by a friend that maybe I’m not behind. Let me give you a bit of a backstory. I am quite busy. To me, it seems there is always something to be done. And that something should’ve been done already. This is so not a good feeling. In the Alabama song, they say, “I rush and rush until life’s no fun.” And this is where I found myself this week. I have been trying to “catch up.” With what? I am not sure. Maybe you relate to this?
What if we chose to see that we are right where we are supposed to be? We don’t have to see ourselves as behind. To a great extent, I see myself as behind because of pressure that I am putting myself. If there are deadlines and due dates for things, like taxes, maybe we need to refocus and prioritize. For the rest of it, what if we reframe it and see that we are right on time.
