Is it too mechanic?
I wondered yesterday if taking everything out of your head does not go ever the limit.
I want to give you two imaginary examples:
Lets say you took a client in your car and went by your house for your wife to give hand his file on the way. Your wife came out of the house with the file, holding your young son's hand in her other hand, and just when you past by, you stopped for a second, and the client got the file through the open window. Just before you started going again, your son said somthing to his mother, and you loved the way she answered him - it was so tender and considerate you just loved her and wanted to tell her how much you admire her. But the traffic was awful and sombody tootled behind you, and the client was sitting by you - so you decided to do it tonight when you come back home and can speak privatly with your wife. When you get to the next traffic lights and wait for the green light, do you pick up your schedule to write it down for 9PM? Do you take out your Agenda list for your wife and write it there? Do you take out of your pocket your little notebook and write a note to be processed later in your office?
Just going out of home after a quick lunch, your 10 year old son came with you to the door telling you that he had a bad day at school. You asked him what happend, and he told you that for years he kept on getting a 100 and not below 96 in every math exam held in class, and today was the first time he got 90! Although you were late for a meeting, you answered him with empathy, but couldn't have with him a longer coversation as you wanted, so running out to your car you thought to yourself you must talk with him again before he goes to sleep. Do you realy have to have it on a list to be done? Will your heart not be enough?
