In his book, “a life having and doing enough”, Wayne Muller points out and reminds us that: “There are few real, authentic emergencies that require our immediate, life-saving response. So why is this important? Because more and more people presume unlimited access to our lives, our homes, our time. Those who want something from us expect us to give it to them. They assume that if the have our possible contact information, we should respond…If our time, our privacy, our choice to create our own schedule is neither a right nor even a privilege, soon our own lives are none of our business but rather are the business of anyone who has access to us…”
Are you the one who send a message to your friends or colleagues and expect them to make response instantly? I have always people that I am not always beside my phone and I won’t able to answer the phone and check my message all the time. I do not make response immediately does not mean that you are less important. I do need a break or what I have been doing is equally important and I need to deal with it at first.
