“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

A Situation  

Buckle up please! There is a situation in the office!

2. Distractions  

We all face 1000+ distractions per day over various interactions with an ever growing number of people, programs, apps and devices. Funny thing is that most of our distractions are initiated by ourselves.

4. Fast Pace 

Impatience and anxiety or a wish to avoid even the slightest delay appeared to be symptomatic of fastlane living according to several studies. Our lives move at such a fast pace that being stuck in traffic is a chance to make a quick phonecall.  Leon Kreitzman, author of the book "24-hour society" says: Our bodies have not evolved to operate in a flexible fastpaced 24-hour environment. Constantly living in the fastlane can compromise our overall wellbeing.

7. Losing Time & Focus

From personal experience we can say that point 1 to 6 have often lead us to feelings of 'overwhelm'. What is most important? What is most urgent? Who is most important? When is the deadline? The key to time and stress management is the ability to push the 'pause' button and regain focus. 

1. Sitting

The average whitecollar worker sits 13,5 hours per day. Researchers have called this "Sitting Disease" because of the effects on our spine, muscles, brain, intestines and its direct correlation to obesity and diabetes.

3. Technology

Our interactions with technology seem to be controling our lives instead of being instruments to enable us control over our own lives. The average adult in the Western world checks his/her phone 149 times per day as a habitual pattern.   

5. Overall Complexity 

People are struggling to juggle work commitments with the demands of family and keeping up with friends. The more complex and important problems get pushed to the side or postponed because more 'urgent' stimulants are in our faces.   

6. Being In The Moment  

It seems like we're always analysing the past or planning and working for the future. We are always talking,  wanting, or doing instead of listening or simply being. 

8. Business or busy-ness? 

If you don't have time to come back to yourself at any given moment, it's because you're not in control. And if you lack the tools to regain control, business will soon become busy-ness.
