So we all understand the importance of prioritization at work. You want to make sure you’re spending your effort and money wisely, that you’re efficient, that you’re not wasting any time. So my question is, how do we apply this to life in general? How do you stack up having drinks with a friend against finishing up a project at work? Exercising vs sleep?
In my experience generally the fires win. We put more time into the last-minute crazy battles, tear-fests, and trips instead of in the everyday stuff we need to keep us sane. Like exercise, sleep and a moment to ourselves. Sometimes “wasting” time on the weekend may be just what you need, but we’ve become so ingrained from work that it becomes harder to do. Or, maybe it’s just me.
How do you choose?
