Running (literal and emotional) from thing to thing is a sign of disorganized frenzy. If you’re constantly running from engagement to engagement, you’re not living life on your terms.
One of my own personal, related, manifestos: I don’t run for public transportation. Heck, I actually avoid learning the schedule. I don’t want to be seen as that guy running after a bus or worrying about why the train is “late”. It’s something I just can’t control and doing so adds more angst than the benefit I receive by trying to worry.
