I’m about to get philosophical on ya.
Do you ever feel like time isn’t on your side? Like you never seem to have enough of it. Too much of it gets spent on things not worthy of the most valuable currency we have. And it seems like you’re rushing around trying to be on time, lend others time, fitting as much as possible into that time we have each day in order so you can live a fulfilled and rich life… before our time runs out.
Yet a funny thing happens… when we’re always worried about time and cramming everything we can into it… time goes by faster… and faster… and faster.
We have less of it.
So if time goes faster when you’re rushing around and thinking about the past and always worrying about the future… and not enough in the present… since time isn’t a real thing (it’s a man made construct)… are we really gaining?
Or are we gaining life when we slow down and enjoy it… work on fewer things with more substance… aim to live more and love more… and do more of what feels right at our core… rather than more of the things others thing we should do?
I dunno. But I think at this point in my life… if we’re after fulfillment… it’s probably more of the latter than the former. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about time… both in growing Carrot… with my young family… with the legacy I want to leave and the people I want to help make huge impacts in their own lives.
Sometimes we think we have all the time in the world to get things done… then the next second we realize the only time we’ve actually got for sure is the second we’re living right now.
I stumbled on this video below that really puts time into perspective.
So… what is time for you? I’d love your thoughts on what TIME is in your life… and whether or not you focus too much on it…. not enough on it… and if we stopped worrying about time so much and about the impacts we can make to help others… if life would be more fulfilling and our “time” would be invested more wisely.
