QUESTION OF THE DAY
Q: “What should I do, I just found out my coworker makes more money than I do. How should I handle it?” -Sylvia, Chicago
A: First thing is to remember to remain calm. Do some strategic thinking about why they may be making more. Calmly talk to your manager, consider their perspective. You may get information you don’t expect and find you have leverage for a raise in the future.
STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
This can go deep in depth into our feelings, emotions, decision making and desired control. Procrastinators often have an issue with time. Objective and subjective time play with our brains differently. Objective time is when predictable events happen and you know that if you’re not there you miss it. Subjective time is when you’re engaged in something you enjoy and time passes quickly or other times it seems to go so slow.
Most procrastinators live with a profound conflict between subjective time and objective time because they are unable or unwilling to realize that their version of time can be very different from clock time.
