What does your average work day look like ? Wait. Don’t tell me.
Does it look something like this ?
You get into the office, fire up your computer and start hacking away at that pile of e-mail that is sitting in your inbox. You don’t even wait to get into the office, but have your smartphone on your nightstand and “just quickly check e-mail” first thing in the morning. You quickly stop by your desk to drop off your things and rush straight into your first meeting
I used to be like you. I used to be that guy. Constantly rushed. Never any time. Always on, always connected.
At some point, I remember being on my fifth cup of coffee by 10.00 AM as a regular habit. Checking my Blackberry in every meeting I went. Firing off e-mails literally while I was going down the elevator, ready to hit “send” the second I got out. And having conference calls in the back of taxi cabs like it was the most natural thing in the world.
At some point, things got so bad I started feeling guilty if I didn’t.
And I hated it.
