“How does it feel to hold the potential of the world in your hand?” Barbara Moore

Let’s talk about time.
“A stitch in time saves nine.” Benjamin Franklin
“Does anybody really know what time it is?” Terry Kath, Chicago Transit Authority
“Time is on our side.” Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones
“There’s no time left for you.”Burton Cummings, The Guess Who
“I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date!” The White Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland
There is nothing so earthly as the passage of time; energy is eternal, and there are no clocks in the cosmos – counting time is earthly, and strictly human. On this plane of existence, time is our most precious commodity; time spent, well or squandered, is gone forever. Time cannot be earned or replenished or replaced – gone is gone.
THE GOOD NEWS: You have the time you need for the projects you want to undertake.
THE BAD NEWS: You must get organized, commit, and get to work.
Time is a slippery thing; dragging after lunch at work, zipping while having lunch with friends. (This is explained as experiential time – google it and be fascinated.) Because time is so easily wasted, making a plan is your best bet for success; plan the work, schedule time to work, set target dates to complete stages of the project. ((REMINDER: If you discover your time management too ambitious for your daily life, rework the plan – there is no shame in learning as you go.))
((The Persistence of Memory, Salvador Dali))
