Time. Such an important part of our lives and yet so hard to get a grasp of! We all have the same amount – 168 hours or 10,080 minutes a week or 86, 400 seconds a day. But we all struggle and wrestle with it.
On top of that time is such a strange concept to grasp. What do we exactly mean by time and why does it seem to go at such a varying pace during different periods of our life? As someone once said:
If you want to know the value of one year, just ask a student who failed a course.
If you want to know the value of one month, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
If you want to know the value of one hour, ask two lovers waiting to meet.
If you want to know the value of one minute, ask the person who just missed the bus.
If you want to know the value of one second, ask the person who just escaped death in a car accident.
And if you want to know the value of one-hundredth of a second, ask the athlete who won a silver medal in the Olympics.
Do join my co-host Andrew Horton and I as we discuss:
- How do we make best use of the limited time we have?
- How the fundamental issue is not managing time, but handling the explosion of choices that we are constantly confronted with.
- The dangers of partial attention and inner restlessness when it comes to time.
- Thinking about energy management rather than time management
- The significant role of rest and recuperation for living in the knowledge worker age.
- Self-identity and time.
- A spiritual view of time that enables me to be fully engaged in the here and now while at the same time having a heart fixed on eternity.
