A quick Friday reflection. Creativity, agency, time and space help us stay focused. We all need variety to maintain physical and mental health. Every action has an effect. Pauses can help us and others catch up- too many immediate responses disallow time and space for meaningful work. We must try to allow some air in. Patience, tolerance, empathy, time and space so that the work that needs doing does get done well.
