We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by requests on our time via our mobile phones, computers and other media. All this connectivity is incredible and helpful but it also makes increasing demands on our time and can lead us to feeling overwhelmed or under pressure to keep up.
In the past I’ve always believed that if people called you to ask you to do something or invite you to something you should get back to them straight away and always try to do the right thing by them… Now I’m not convinced…
Doing things because we feel we have to rather than we want to or if it’s true to who we are, is that healthy for us?
Is there a difference between being responsive and being reactive? I’m beginning to see that there is.
