Urgency Addicts: Get Free

Urgency addiction kills efficiency. It disrupts workflow. It breaks concentration.

Urgency addiction looks like this:

Checking e-mail every five minutes

Answering the phone whenever it rings

Tolerating endless interruptions from coworkers, friends, and clients.

Enjoying the “high” you get by putting out fires and solving crises.

All this may feel good-it may make you feel important temporarily-but in the end it undercuts your mission.

If you are constantly living in a state of urgency, something is wrong with either (A.) your perception of reality or (B.) your planning process.

In either case, this is a problem worth fixing.
