It’s entirely possible that acting
as if
would actually create the very outcome you’re hoping for.

Maybe it's time for me to start pretending.

To see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

The whole business of what's reality and what isn't has never been solved and probably never will be. So I don't care to be too definite about anything.

-Joseph Goldstein

I find that I tell my employees more and more to slow down and take a breath when things are busy at work. The idea that, yes it is busy, but also we make more mistakes when we're rushing is a hard one to get across to some people.
