The telephone is ringing. Your ice cream is melting. Next month’s lease is due. There’s a helpful workshop developing in a number of months. Your exhausting drive will fail earlier than the top of the yr. College tuition might want to begin being paid in 5 years. Your again tooth goes to want a crown in 2030. New York City goes to be underwater in 2050.
When is soon?
Every one among this stuff is one thing we will select to concentrate to proper now. Each one is both pressing or essential, it’s as much as us. Paying consideration to one thing when the issue remains to be small makes it far much less of a problem later.
The ringer on a telephone was designed to determine urgency. And social media has optimized for that itch as nicely.
But it’s less than them.
[For your calendars, two updates:
I’ll be doing a live event with Chip Conley, bestselling author, impresario and big thinker (and my first co-author, from 1986!) in a live chat (with QA) about jobs, learning, wisdom and making a ruckus. Today! Just hours from now.
All the details are at this LinkedIn post.
In addition, I’ll be joining the other Akimbo teachers for an online free-for-all and jamboree on Tuesday, January 11th. Hosted by Ramon Ray, I’m looking forward to joining my friends online. I hope you can come. It’s free and you can sign up for it here.
Hope to see you there.]
