Last Tuesday I wrote two posts at my 4inIreland blogs. My plan was to write, proofread and edit them quickly so that I could get on with my work of preparing for Thanksgiving Day.
Just really quick didn’t work though. I bumped into quite a few technical problems which I won’t bore you with now 😉
In our fast-paced world, we don’t have much time anymore. We demand for things to happen instantly. Three minutes are still too long to heat up the meal in the microwave. The driver in the car ahead of us doesn’t drive fast enough — which means, that we won’t get to our appointment on time ( 🙄 perhaps we should have left earlier). The washer we buy needs to have a thirty — better yet a fifteen — minutes program because we just don’t have much time to deal with the laundry.
But we cannot do all things just really quick, e.g. to develop a skill takes patience, repetition and time. We admire people who show great performances but we often forget all the time and effort they’ve have put into learning and training for the event/s.
We might be able to get some things done quickly but most things will require our full attention. And I think there lies the problem: sometimes we try to get things over with but instead of fully concentrating on task/s we want to get them accomplished just really quick — alongside other things.
