There’s no such thing as being time-poor.

Rather, it’s a misallocation of priorities. When the (seemingly) urgent takes precedence over the important.

The result, is a never-ending game of chase. A chase for more status. A chase for that boost to our ego we get when we triumph over another.

And a chase led by a pervasive apprehension. When our desire to be continually connected takes precedence over what’s best for us.

Unfortunately, playing chase is a zero sum game.

The tagging never stops, and we wind up exhausted.

Instead, why not spend more time at the skate park?

Where, while a sense of belonging drives engagement, social comparison is not the focus.

And where the priority is the process, working on the next piece to our puzzle to get better.
