Do you find yourself time poor?
Perhaps doing good and useful work, helpful, generous decently paid work for others?
Is your calendar full of appointments and bringing you both a sense of satisfaction for business is booming, yet a somewhat internal trepidation about so much work filling the calendar so far in advance?
One ongoing issue for people in our super fast changing world is lack of adaption to change.
Back in grandpa’s grandfathers’ days, people would say things like “I’ll catch up with you in spring.”
And nearly everyone was just fine with that.
Then society progressed to, “Let’s have a meeting in december.”
And nearly everyone was just fine with that too.
Then society moved forward to “I need to see you next week about this.”
And more people fell away, the people who weren’t fine with that. Forced waiting instead for next weeks resolution and decembers comfort.
Then civilisation progressed to “Our deadline for this is close of business Friday.”
And people who were fine, took on that stress, and carried the burden, whilst others avoided – for their own valid reasons. And those that were fine but stressed…
“I’m working on this right now, I’ve got something else booked in 45 minutes, and my calendar is so filled up, I am scheduling in family appointments just to make sure I don’t forget what I so desperately want to remember.”
And now we’ve got covid, and those who are time poor are now even time destitute and ragged and thin and some are breaking and some are crying and some need help even more than others… who are soldiering on – and will delay their own release until they ____?
And all along those who are alone, or isolated, feel that whilst saying…
“I need to chat with you now.” , I’ll see u in spring.
“I need to discuss this now.”, I’ll be over in decemember.
“We should have a chat about this today.” I’ll be available next week.
“I’m worried about this issue, can you help.”, We’re available on monday, call us.
“I’m concern that this has happened.” I understand your concerns, I’ll deal with it by 5 pm friday.
“This is an absolute disaster, ultra highest priority right now!” The systems broke, error unreceived message, fatal system crash, backups lost, hard drive failure, electricity down, logistics overwhelmed…
“Wow neighbour, the shit really has hit the fan, how’s your family coping?”
Well it’s funny you should ask but we seen this coming I’ve got food to spare with you when you need it and a garden growing and some seeds I’ve stockpiled for whomever.
It’s not much neighbour, but we are working on more and now that the system really has crashed I’ll have to expand the garden and I have a list of things to do, do you have some time to chat about it?
I’m not sure what to do, should I read your books first, or plant the seeds, or have a drink of water?
Fair enough, you have a think/feel about what you want your priorities are, I’ll be here.
Well actually I’m really keen to know what is the best thing to do right now, can you share?
I’m thirsty you caught me digging. Please lets go inside for a glass of rainwater and we will discuss your options.
Options! That’s a joke, I got no work, no money, no friends, no family, I’m a drinker, a smoker, a ____.
Forget all that mate, it’s anew world, and you have a neighbour offering you work, a drink, means to make your own food, and something to do other than drink smoke and _____.
What’s the catch?
ARE You going to keep whining to vent your issues at people who can’t fix your issues?
Vent to government! Vent to business! Vent at the person who is raising your steam! Be polite, use your manners if you can, if you can’t then show the “other” exactly how emotional you are! Never be Violent, Always be Peacefully Purposefully Communicating your needs.
Emotions are your means towards addressing the issues of the world, for when you are angry, you have the right to be angry and the responsibility to address the issue, or your own righteous anger will eat you down, down down down, into repression, self-oppression and depression and despair, and seasonal affective disorder and all the rest that a pill can “manage”, but Words can Redress.

Peace to All.
My wife and I have under taken cyber security probes of the software that controls the donation process, seems quite safe, for even knowing of the transaction via email and receiving the money, I could not geolocate my own wife’s donation_place via a banking system. Seems pretty decent.
When you have reached the summit and look around joyfully with triumphant thoughts of success. Do You Ever Wonder about moving the entire mountain somewhere else? Or reducing the mountain climb for others? Or will you just walk away knowing that the mountain was there and feeling some sense of achievement for having moved from bottom to top and back down again?
Try Spelunking next you so called Mountain climber.
