When I feel that I've somehow misspent or "lost" time for whatever reason--illness, interruptions, procrastination, indecisiveness, befuddlement, poor prioritization, etc.--the "logical" temptation is to try to catch up or even get "ahead" by hurrying, both internally and in my actions.

But I suspect that actually, the secret of getting out of that kind of cycle (because it does turn into a cycle, since rushing breeds an internal chaos that leads only to more lost time) is to do the opposite--to allow myself to become still inside--and then work and live from that quiet place.

Kind of like the Costanza the opposite of what one would think...
