101 Things I Don’t Know How To Teach My Son (But Wish I Could) #14 Nothing Takes 5 Minutes

Dear Son,

Today, just before a meeting, I had five “extra” minutes. I thought I could use the time to quickly eat a sandwich, as I was feeling a little 11 o’clockish.

Well fortunately I reminded myself of something I am taking a lifetime to learn: nothing takes “5 minutes”.

In other words, don’t hurry, don’t rush. There is no need to fill each moment with activity.

Befriend your idle thoughts.

Love Dad
