The Myth of Being “Caught Up”

If you’re a busy person, let go of the myth of “catching up.” You won’t ever catch up. Or, even if you do, you’ll be “behind” again before long. I suggest more positive and attainable goals such as being efficient, having clear priorities and being timely. But trying to be “caught up” sounds like preparing for a life where there is no longer any motion or activity. Is that even what you really want? It stands to reason that if you’re having a hard time “catching up” you’re a busy person, and you’re probably like that because you prefer activity. You would not relish boredom. At any rate, going by the principle that it’s all in your attitude, and how you look at things, “I must catch up” is one of those notions that leads to more stress without any real results. I recommend discarding it.
