The 4 ‘Attachment Styles,’ and How They Sabotage Your Work-Life Balance - The New York Times
Our subconscious programming — developed through our youth and on into adulthood — plays a huge role in how we survive or thrive at work. Here’s how your “attachment style” may affect your office relationships.
Your better mind knows exactly how to manage your time better at work but a primal, seemingly uncontrollable urge to do the opposite overtakes you.
You know you should say no when you’re asked to take on that new project, but you say yes. Or you know your boss said your report was good enough, but you work until midnight perfecting it. Or you’re just stuck — wanting to do better but unsure that trying will help — so you do nothing.
If you are frustrated with your seemingly irrational behavior, the root issue may be deep subconscious programming known as your “attachment style.” Your attachment style dictates how you relate to other people, particularly in situations that trigger stress.
Attachment style discussions typically arise in relation to the bond between parents and children or romantic partners, but in my work as a time management coach, I’ve seen that individuals can also “attach” differently in the workplace. Here’s how to identify your attachment style, and take control of how you manage your time.

Letting Your Mind Go Free: The Value of Daydreaming | The Startup Finance Blog
I sit at my desk, a warm mug of tea in my hands, and look out the window to my left. Across the narrow road is a wheat field, and peeking above the hedgerow I can see the pale green sprouts of the winter wheat that has recently burst through the soil. Beyond a row of trees, about a half mile away, is a gently curving hill, with more trees framed against the sky.
As I look out the window, my eyes wander, and so does my mind. I unfocus my view, and my thoughts start drifting – moving from one idea to another, seemingly at random. As I do this, I let my imagination go free: free of the constraints that I impose on thoughts, free of the need to think of anything specific. It’s a wonderful feeling to not clutch at thoughts, to allow ideas to spring up unfettered.
Since I work from home, and live in a rural area, I enjoy my surroundings and use them as a catalyst to help spawn ideas. I daydream. Not everyone has this kind of view. For many years, the only view I had was a cityscape, a parking lot, or, often, nothing other than a wall. But I would still get into this state of free thinking, eyes closed if necessary, to spur on my creativity.
