One of a million tiny reasons margin is necessary

This blog is about HQ – the box that holds. the four smaller boxes

 

We had a safety deposit box for 10 years at a branch that is closing. For several days, i’ve been working on the alternative.

It has taken a disproportional amount of time to secure a safety deposit box at a new location.

This is one of the reasons why margin is necessary in our busy lives.

It’s so easy for some small, new to-do to throw our schedule into a mini tail spin.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Got margin?

Windermere Prep
Yesterday afternoon at school…sitting and thinking.

 

Got margin?

i define margin as padding in your daily schedule for breathing room. Enough extra time to drive the speed limit. Enough extra time to stop and talk to someone for a few minutes. Enough extra time to look at the sky.

Time to watch, listen, think.

Time to enjoy something ridiculously simple, like a child’s art in a banker’s office, and then talk to the banker about it.
