It’s so commonplace, you may not even notice it. But slowly, over the years, it has become increasingly en vogue to be busy. Not just busy, crazy busy.
It’s like a symbol of worth. Bored? You must not have very much going on in your life. Phone not beeping incessantly? Must not be very in-demand.
And since busyness is addictive, instead of busyness being a once-in-a-while thing,
Busyness becomes a way of life.
Eek! Toxic! No wonder more people are experiencing fried adrenals and need 5 cups of java to make it through the day.
There are two things to really understand in order to transform your relationship to time:
- Time is relative.
- What you focus on matters.
Ok, how can time be relative, you ask? There are 24 hours in a day and you can literally watch the minutes tick by, right? True. Time is parcelled up that way. However, that’s actually irrelevant because time becomes relative as you experience it. You never experience two minutes in the same way!
Notice when you’re enjoying yourself the time zips by? Notice when you’re stuck in a board meeting and that arrogant arse keeping nattering on that time just draaaaaaags? That’s the relativity of time.
And herein lies the secret to transforming time. Change your experience of time to change your relationship to it.
How do you do this? By the second point, above. By focusing more on the spaciousness, abundance, expansiveness of time rather than its fleeting nature, the scarcity of it, the crunch and rush of it.
