Time is running out, and you should be doing something about it … but you don't know what it is.
That's what this post is about: something called time anxiety. I've been dealing with it for years, and maybe you have, too—even if you've never heard the name.
I believe that time anxiety is the most pressing problem of the modern world. Once you work your way through Maslow's hierarchy and your basic needs are taken care of, you start worrying about time—and you never stop.
- You worry that time is passing you by
- You worry you're too late for something—you missed your chance
- You worry there's something you should be doing right now, but you're not sure what it is
