We mortgage our time when we say yes to a project.
If we say yes to too many projects, we can create a huge debt, more than we could ever get done with the new time we get.
There are catastrophic strategies. We may have a breakdown. We may declare time bankruptcy and walk away from our lives.
Or we can start into a process of refinancing, renegotiating deadlines, deciding what the minimal acceptable quality is. As part of that, we can ruthlessly eliminate the time leaks (which helps with time income) and we can refuse to take on any more time debt.
I would like to flesh this out further, but I can’t. I have time mortgages of my own I’m paying down.
