#1205² MEDITATION 4.0² – S7 E4 – TIME OFF

Taking time off. We say it, we mean it. But what if we can’t? We learn all those useful things at school. Facts about who knows what. The length of the rivers, the population of big cities and the like. Sadly they do not teach us the things about life that have the potential to make the difference all together. For example how to take time off.

What sounds like one of the easiest of things in life is for me the hardest. Taking time off is a skill I haven’t completely understood yet. How is it possible for people to take two weeks off from their average life, spending their quality time somewhere on the other side of the planet, when we all know the only thing they are spending is their money. I just don’t get it. Why would I pay someone for ending up not being able to do what I normally do. Does your life really sucks that hard? Or are you that desperate for insta pictures?

I have to learn it, no doubt about that. And the truth is, I have changed a lot in recent times. I am less focused on my ambitious goals. I allow myself to “waste”, yes, you have heard right, to waste my time doing something unproductive. Like playing games, watching a series or reading stuff about Porsches. Do I make progress? Kind of! But the truth is, I have still a long way to go.

The funny thing is that I try to take my time off as productive as possible, which is by itself so ironical. Taking time off is supposed to be just that, taking time off. It’s not a competition, it’s not a race, it’s just time off. Well, some day I will understand. One day, no actually not one day. I already have reached so much. I can easily take time off already. I could. But I am not yet ready. Soon I will be.

See you next time!
