Just Say Hide

by - m on 03/06/2012

At work we are constantly pulled in multiple directions.

Meetings to attend, opinions to share, discussions to have.

Then we rise early or stay up late to get the things we consider worthwhile done.

We steal from our personal time – our time with family, friends, and ourselves – to get the work finished.

But we still don’t get the work done…

and we begin again.

What’s the answer?

It’s not always practical or possible to ‘Just say no’. (It tends to upset the boss).

But we can hide.

(I’ve been known to grab an empty conference room, go to a local coffee shop, or even sit in my car to write scripts or just to think).

Learn to sequester yourself.

Learn to make yourself unavailable for interruptions.

Just say hide.
