Okay it's time to talk about life hats. Do you have a life hack for the listeners. You don't think maybe goes back to what i said before my like half my my life hack is almost the opposite of a life hack and it's really learned to take the time to do things i think we're always in a rush to get something done always in a rush to finish next project and you know i found that sometimes when you partner with time like you just leave behind for a little bit of time. The answer comes in it comes better than you could have done it if you had rushed through. Yes that is such a good point. I've definitely noticed that in my own life that we just my my parents just built their house and some of the delays were the biggest gifts in disguise. Yeah up with something. They absolutely loved which they wouldn't have had time to dream up. Had there not been a delay that is so good. I think the my life hack is learned to become times friend universities racing against time but like sometimes it really just takes time to do it only time can do you know yes tincture of time. That's actually a phrase in medicine in medicine and patients hate it but some all what we need right here right now is to the tincture of time. Love that and you know what. I am a rush rush. Go go to do ten things at a time type of person and it really creates a lot of anxiety and and if i remember to breathe deeply an act if i actually i'll actually physically slow my body language down and like if i'm folding the laundry all think just think about folding the laundry and has home quiet. Slow body language. It's amazing how that can just bring your anxiety down and bring your focus in. And this is something i learned in my forties but man if i could have learned it in. My twenties have really been helpful. No absolutely i've just i've learned. I think it's you know there's a saying youth is wasted on the young. Yes i agree. It takes time to learn.
