Whether or not we'll *ever* have time to relax is a hidden variable, not a resistance barrier. That means either we will or we won't; it's not particularly dependent on how hard we try.
Furthermore, given the current probability spectrum for the future, the consequences of going slow (in those futures for which we should have gone fast) are much worse than going fast (in those futures for which we should have gone slow).
So, to quote a certain bird:
"GO AHEAD! PANIC! Do it now and avoid the June rush! Fear death by water!"
