Who has never had to race against time to solve something urgent? Among various meanings, the Houaiss dictionary presents urgent as “that which indicates an immediate need or hurry.” Faced with so many situations that I have seen, urgency can arise, for example, from two different directions. The first lives up to its meaning: the scenario requires that the situation be handled or resolved in a short time because of a meeting or need that was unforeseen. The second perspective is the most common: the urgency is a result of the lack of planning or the fulfillment of tasks after the deadline. And what is the result? Stress, agony, discomfort, restlessness and other symptoms that certainly you’ve already experienced. How about we start a campaign for the conscious use of urgency in our day-to-day professional lives? It is a fact that we will never be without urgency, but we can predict or anticipate trends that will facilitate our work. If you exercise a leadership role, direct your team regarding the scheduling of activities and be a source of solutions. Finish the text today quoting an ancient and only “too true” saying: “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.”
