What good is relaxing when I’m stressed about it?
I’ve been getting more done, a LOT more done, stimulated by the book, Deep Work, which has encouraged me to work in pockets of focused time. Now I’m thinking about how to use a bit of the time gained to relax.
When I relax, I’m haunted by the feeling that I am wasting time while being unproductive.
This is truly disappointing. When I was working all the time in a disarray of unrelated tasks, I had less guilt about being unproductive because I was busy. True, I was frustrated at how little meaningful work I was accomplishing, but at least I was working a lot.
Yes, this conundrum is idiotic. I live in Colorado to enjoy my life! My tagline is Live – Work – Love Colorado.™ I’m working on this (see photo). It’s a process.
