Time doesn't fly by and we don't have a "time issue." Time has been moving at the same pace as it always has and your time issue is more than likely an excuse.
As I write, I must plead guilty. Many times I've written those worn out cliches of:
- Time goes by so quickly
- Life is brief
- Don't blink
I could go on, but I've slowly been coming to an awakening.
The reason we in America (maybe in other parts of the world too) feel like time goes so fast, is we are always:
- Chasing after something
- Wanting something
- Afraid of losing something
- Getting involved in something
- Worrying about something
That group above will make you feel like your driving a high performance car on the Audubon-in all waking hours. Why not find your moment instead? Why not take the road less travelled? Why not take a risk and say no?
Being in the moment is not a worn out statement. I wish it were, then it might be an indicator that we've stopped the madness. Being in the moment is essential and everyone can do it, if they want. The scary part is many will wait to the end before they realize how much time they've burned.
America is in trouble for a number of reasons. Our abuse of time in the pursuit of "all of the above" is insuring a troublesome outcome. I'm convinced there is a desire, but as in many things, desire is not enough. I've moved to the place where I purposely, every day, find my moment. I have to.
Find your moment and turn around.
