“The only reason for time, is so
that everything doesn’t
happen at once.”
— Albert Einstein
I learned this lesson from a friend several years ago.
She had two homes, one is Europe and one in the U.S. When she was in Europe, she was sad and frustrated because she missed her home and family in the U.S. And when she was in the U.S., she was frustrated and sad because she missed her home and family in Europe. (I mean, we should all have these problems, right?)
She really wanted to live in both places. She didn’t want to give up either one. And even though she split her time between continents, it was unsatisfying. In fact, she was miserable. We talked about it often, nearly every time we spoke. And finally I blurted out, “The only way you can resolve this is to be where you are.”
Try this: do one thing at at time, focus on what you’re doing and think about that instead of something else you’d rather be doing.
