COT: Recently, there was a 7 Day Happiness Challenge in the NYT (which I encourage you to check out), and one of the daily challenges was to schedule an 8 minute phone call with someone you’ve been meaning to catch up with. The idea is that busy people often put off things like this to some indefinite future date when they will have a surplus of time to catch up on things. In reality, doing those things now and staying within your limits leads to greater contentment. A challenge to catch up with someone but also to apply this principle to other seemingly big things you’re putting off. Take them on now in manageable ways.
