Check in or check boxes? ⠀

How often have we found ourselves writing down a lengthy to-do list, running around in a state of complete and epic panic from Place A to Place B back to Place A, getting up at the ass crack just to get in all in. We check off boxes, as if our day was meant and designed for us to check the boxes, not to...live.


We often put things we didn't think of when initially making our to-do list that we add on at the end of the day just so we can check it off. The flooding of accomplishment when we cross it off in black sharpie, as if to say: I AM A CHAMPION OF BOX CHECKERS. I AM EXCELLENCE.


And yet, at what expense? We have checked and crossed out and sweat, cried, and ran wild...at the expense of what? We trade sanity for doing more. We exchange our self worth for arbitrary rushing and timelines.
