We wake up looking at the clock. By the time we open our eyes, we’re already stressed that we might be late for something. Before we even realise what day it is or even where we are, we begin counting to see if we have time.
We spend most of our day like this. Calculating. Looking at the clock. Stressing.
Our heads are filled with perceptions about what needs to be done at what time. The fact that we might be late as per our age for some things adds more stress. The same if we are early. It seems that either going too slow or too fast in life is always frowned upon. Everyone will always have something to say. That’s just the way human nature is.
But we all have our own rhythms. And that is the pace we should live by.
Like Einstein said “not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that is counted truly counts”.
Powerfully stated by Jay Shetty in this short video to watch when pressure is mounting, you need “to be able to create meaningful, purposeful, fulfilling lives for yourselves and learn how to use that to make an impact and a difference on the lives of others. That would be true success”.
In the end, it doesn’t matter what other people say or think. All that matters is how you are.
