Time is the most consistent yet seemingly mysterious thing that we all experience. On the surface, time is an absolute constant. Second, by second, it marches on. It is metered out and – whether we like it, appreciate it and embrace it, or not – we all have all the time there is.
- Do You Have Time to Have Enough Time?
Until you are comfortable practicing the Art of Doing Enough, you may find that having enough time for time is either a challenge or a nebulous thing that eludes you. And that means becoming as aware of time as you can. It also means letting go to flow with time without your own limitations placed on it.
All too often, you can run out of time, become bored, wonder why you don’t have more time with the time you do have. The mystery becomes unraveled when you realize that you tend to compress or expand time to suit yourself. You may not believe you do this, but your perception of time will change depending on your circumstances, the people you’re with and what you have to do relative to time.
But no matter what you do, time is and always be a constant. One thousand years from now, we’ll still have a day that, within perhaps a few milliseconds, will be 24 hours long. If you can begin to work better with the time that you do have, you will become more aware of and practice the art of doing enough. You will be more aware and perhaps even determined to not waste the time that you to have. And you may even wish to work with time, rather than against it.
And now it’s time for me to do other things.
