Do you ever have that feeling of helplessness that comes with an approaching deadline? The closer you get to the deadline the more weight the work you have to get done seems to weigh you down, even though you have been steadily progressing.
It doesn’t even have to be a deadline that has a physical thing to turn in at the end. You could be going somewhere and you need to be there but every second the outcome seems to be farther away from the desired one.
This relates back to my post about time and how we can never get it back but I think that the feeling you have when you are running out of time is something that is hard to achieve in any other situation. The combination of dread and guilt that you feel. Dread for the guilt I think. Guilt because you most likely have an obligation and you will be guilty if you can not fulfill that obligation.
I think that this is an interesting phenomenon and wanted to share my thoughts on it. Thanks for reading!
