I would think that it may be as simple as time management. It could be that you're so swamped with work, or whatever it is - simply the routine of daily life that's taking up all of your time. Perhaps there are people you haven't seen for a while, and who you've been meaning to call, and you haven't had time. Your dream might just be reminding you to make time for the more important things in life.
"If someone asked me what a human being ought to devote the maximum of his life to, I would answer: training. Train more than you sleep."
