What is Life Friction?
Life friction is the rubbing that occurs in daily life due to poor planning, preparation, and action.
Life friction is all the little things that happen to you due to your disorganization.
Life friction adds stress.
Life friction adds extra work.
It is the trouble that is created when we forget a task or an obligation. (I forgot that report was due today. I forgot about that meeting this afternoon.)
It is the self-inflicted stress that is the result of missing a task or deadline.
It is having to redo a task over again due to poor planning. (You have to make an extra trip to the store because you forgot something. Might have written it down somewhere… but you didn’t have the list with you.)
Complications that arise from leaving something till later. Tasks are harder to complete the longer they sit.
It is the cost or penalty associated with doing something at the last minute. (Late fees? Increased prices?)
Too much Friction?
What happens when two things have lots of friction? Heat is generated. Eventually, if you rub two sticks together it starts a fire.
So, the question is…
Can you have have too much life friction?
Can you catch fire from Life Friction? Yes, you can.
Have you ever seen someone go “up in flames” at work? Or have their person lives destroyed due to disorganization?
People lose jobs, and relationships can be destroyed by life friction.
