Q. What’s really bugging you this morning?
A. Way behind on my work.
Q. Is that all?
A. Lousy computer, slowing me down.
Q. Anything else?
A. Scattered, evasive mind-set. Unwilling to confront harsh realities. Impatient. Resentful. Objecting to this and that. Generally freaked out.
A. Overload. Too much going on.
Q. What can you do to change this?
A. Simplify. Eliminate unnecessary stressors. Smooth out the rough edges. Count the minutes, count the costs.
Q. And the costs are?
Q. How so?
A. You don’t want to know.
Q. May I then therefore be excused?
A. I’d prefer it, frankly. Am under time pressure. Time is money and money is time. I have more important things to do. Goodbye.
