Perception – Out of sight . Out of mind
I was thinking about all of you that work, go to school, attend functions, work a 2nd job and attend more things.
It sucks because it takes you away from your family, friends and loved ones. And nothing is more challenging then not having enough time. Nothing more frustrating then when someone points out that you have neglected him or her. And for those that don’t understand why you are so dang busy… simply remind them that you are doing what you HAVE to do today so that you can do what you WANT to do tomorrow. But keep in mind, often the real fear or disappointment is not that you are too busy for them, it’s their perception that they are ‘out of sight / out of mind’ a hard pill to swallow for most. Do your best to keep those important people in your life connected, involved and loved. Remind that them that you have not forgotten and PLAN out things to do so that you can give them a sense of QUALITY time. As with any tribe, we all want a sense of belonging. Don’t let the perception of forgotten and dismissed spoil your family/personal relationships.
