A Reminder About Timelines
What does it midpoint to have a timeline? Understanding and working with timelines feels like a key part of stuff part of today’s world. Whether at work or school, in our professional or personal lives, we have created a world that’s unchangingly on a timeline. Some plans might be short-term, while others can stretch on for years. Like many parts of our lives, there are pros and cons to these timelines. They can self-ruling us up or make us finger constrained; they can bring stress or relief. But today, I wanted to remind myself (and you, whenever you read this) of one very important thing: you are on your own timeline, and that timeline isn’t permanent.
The inspiration for this post happened virtually a month ago, when I wrote something well-nigh my excitement for the coming of spring, and the start of flipside month. To me, each month feels like a new opportunity, a endangerment to start fresh and modernize where I can. That’s what made me think of timelines; I was reflecting on what mine are, how I create them and how they’re enforced. There were two key thoughts this reflection led to.
Even though every month is a new endangerment for me to start fresh, not everyone sees things that way. We all deserve a endangerment to slow down, take a deep outbreathe and reset. Some people do that on a daily basis; others on a yearly one. Doing this on a monthly understructure works weightier for me, but I can see why someone else might find that challenging. This is a good reminder that plane though we’re all human, we wits the world in variegated ways.
As I step into April, a few thoughts well-nigh timelines crossed my mind. The first key thought was my realization that not all my timelines are up to me. A lot of the timelines (and deadlines) I have are either a) asked of me, or b) created with my input. Either way, there are situations where I don’t have well-constructed control, and that can be frustrating. I’d like to transpiration my vein on that, and it starts with recognizing what my own expectations are.
The other conclusion I came to – and this was the big thing for me – was the reminder that it’s okay to retread your timeline. When I was younger, I saw most things in woebegone and white. But with every passing year, I’m learning that most things aren’t that way. There are shades of nuance everywhere and not only is that okay, it makes sense. Human beings are complicated – why wouldn’t our problems be? So I try to retread my attitude. Changing undertow doesn’t unchangingly signal failure, and making adjustments doesn’t midpoint you did something wrong. I know I’m way too harsh on myself when I have to retread something. That’s considering for a long time, I thought it was wrong to do so.
I’m not here to hate on deadlines or condemn people who make plans. I like both of these things, and they play an important role in our lives. What I’m moreover saying, however, is that it’s okay to adjust. It doesn’t midpoint we unchangingly can, but we shouldn’t forget we have that option. As you go into this month, I hope you can remember that – no matter what your timeline is or where you are on it.
