I had the proclivity to rush things, which I’m not proud of.
- I rushed to get into meetings on time.
- I rushed to finish my work.
- I rushed through any goal I set for myself.
People close to me were hurt the most by what I did. My colleagues felt hurried by me. My family members felt neglected because my spare time got shorter and shorter.
The adrenaline gushed through me, but I, too, felt the damage. I missed the ability to notice opportunities when my focus was too narrow. I missed the ability to think creatively.
