Four attitudinal culprits work against taking time to pause. - Deepstash

Four attitudinal culprits work against taking time to pause.

Four “time thieves” lead people to overload themselves – The thieves have a positive side, but they create dysfunction when taken to extremes:

  • Drive transforms into overdrive – The push to do more can cause people to load themselves with work beyond their capacity.
  • Commitment to excellence turns into perfectionism –
  • The pursuit of information becomes overload – 
  • Dedication to activity turns into frenzy – The need to feel busy occurs when people conflate activity with productivity.

“There are some thoughts you just can’t have while hustling down a hallway.”
