91- Experiences As Containers

We’ve all been on a date or meeting that dragged on for just a little bit too long. Similar to a tire with a leak, what might have been a fantastic 45-minute encounter somehow deflates into a dragged-out two-hour meeting with a floppy goodbye.

While it might be tempting to drag out a positive experience, the best thing we can do is to treat every experience like a closed #container with a defined start and end time.

In the same way, a near-death #experience reminds us of our mortality and unlocks focus and gratitude; the closed container encourages all parties to be fully present and aligned in the mutually agreed-upon finite experience.

Want more time? Plan a new container.
