Thursday Thoughts: Universal Time Management

How many times do each of of us say, “I need more hours in a day?” Or, “Where’s the time gone?” I certainly do, far more often than I should because I’m huge on procrastinating, pushing up against deadlines, and taking on way more than I should, given the actual time restraints. But at the same time, the Universe has a point.

There’s so much time in a day, Silver.

You could have breakfast, lunch, and dinner on 3 different continents.

You could outline the book you’re going to write, start the screenplay adaptation, and watch “Gone With The Wind,” before the sun even sets.

Spend a day at work, and still have 16 hours left over.

Or you could just think 60,000 different thoughts as you tool all over your hometown.

Hey, the record for climbing Mt. Everest is under 9 hours, leaving 15 to nap and go Yeti searching. There’s so much time in a day, PJ. So much.

You’re rich,
The Universe

Especially, Silver, when one stops claiming there’s so little of it, huh?

This always puts me in mind of an old song by the Byrds, the lyrics taken from a passage from the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testiment. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” I’m not huge on religion, but I’ll take good advice where I find it. I need to work on my time management, and I need to remember that each thing in its own time. What about you? Do you procrastinate? Keep to a tight schedule? Or just roll with the flow like the Universe does?

  1. Time. Yeah, I know that if I used it more wisely, I’d gets scads more accomplished. When I makes the plans, I gets them done. But like plotting, it just isn’t in me to plan things out. I mean, I do sometimes. Then I get distracted and wander off. :shrug:
