I want to hear from you about your relationship with time!
But, just to get the conversation started, I’ll tell you some of my fill-in-the-blank answers.
I struggle most with time when...
- I operate from a place of magical thinking, believing I can accomplish more than is actually humanly possible in a given day.
- I mistakenly believe I can outrun the clock.
- I follow my distractions instead of going all-in on one thing at a time.
- I tell myself the story of not having enough time.
- I get too big-picture in my thinking and forget that the here and now is all I have to work with.
What about you? Tell me about your time struggles in the comments, or email me if you prefer a little privacy.
(#tbt to October 9, 2016, when my husband and I found ourselves inside a giant hourglass in Colorado. ;-) Not really. We were in the south-central part of the state, where the Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounded us as we climbed the tallest sand dunes in North America. The dunes are estimated to contain over 5 billion cubic meters of sand. It was a strenuous climb that involved lots of stopping to empty our shoes, but time stood still. We were fully present. And we made it to the top of Star Dune, at 750 feet, where we took out kites from our backpack and sent them up into the sky.)
