What had you hot and bothered?

Friday, 10 July 2020

It’s hot. And getting hotter. So they say. But there’s no agreement on why it’s getting hotter.

Here’s what we all know and agree on. If you don’t do what you committed to do, you will feel hot and bothered. And the longer it bothers you, the hotter you will get.

Now, if you’re like me, you’ll put on your shrug-mask, the one that shows you believe procrastination is part of being human. But, like me, you also know that the shrug does not get rid of the feeling that you should have and you really still ought to.

Being human also means we can fool others, but not ourselves. This is the tricky aspect to being human, and this is how it messes with you. Once you have decided on doing something, you have made a commitment.

It matters not who knows about it, or who it is for. The set-up is the same: You have made a commitment to yourself, the one person you cannot shrug off with a casual, “Sorry!”

Having spread the guilt all around, let’s get to your Friday Trigger Questions:

  • What had you hot and bothered this week?
  • What did you do to cool off?
  • What will you do next week to stay cool?
  • Why will you bother?
