Sometimes, it feels like we are only accomplishing something when we are “doing” something. This morning, I am in Columbus, OH. its a slightly blustery fall morning. I have 30 minutes before I begin my presentation. I’m all set, nothing else to “do.” yet I have this overwhelming urge to make myself busy.
Instead I’m forcing myself to sit and think and watch the leaves blow by the hotel window (although I’m obviously not even doing that because I’m writing this). I have to remind myself that not only is it OK to simply “be,” but at times, it’s even essential.
