Can we normalise NOT confusing someone’s FREE time with their AVAILABILITY…???
This isn’t the full list of “free”.
- Us Time
- Recover time
- Recharge time
- Getting bored to increase creativity time
- Hobby time
- Casual social time
- Parallel task time
- Special interest time
And none of that should be confused for “available”. Yes, they can be paused while an urgent thing is attended to…
… but be careful whose “urgent” that is.
Is it actually objectively urgent, is it emotionally actually urgent for them, or is it labelled as urgent so that their whim is rated as more important than your need?
Because “free” time is a need.
How long has your’s been on hold for?
