The meaning of time..

9 Apr

..is never something we consider in depth. We say things like,

‘I haven’t got enough time to do x…’

When we really mean that we don’t consider x, as an activity, important enough for us to dedicate a part of our life to it. Or maybe that we consider doing something else more pressing which pushes x off the radar. Depending on what x is, by declaring it unimportant we can sometimes bin it forever, but there are some things which will rise back up day after day. There are things that will not be done if you don’t do them. Even if you push them off the list time and time again.

Mundane examples: cleaning the bathroom, taking out the bin, paying the electricity bill.

These Xs can be pushed aside due to ‘lack of time’ but you can see repercussions quickly and so interestingly time can be found. No one wants to live in the dark in a rubbish tip.

When it comes to making decisions it’s easy to plead lack of time as an escape route. However if you knew you were going to end up living in darkness unless you decided to pay your electricity bill you would make time to find out how to pay it and actually do it. You might leave it right until the last minute but it would be done.

If x is a decision in life that’s easier to ignore especially as it’s one thats going to take a lot of time to think about, it’s easy to replace it with small daily tasks. But by ignoring it we’re declaring that it’s not important enough for us to dedicate part of our life to.

Huge mistake if it is our life that is in the hands of the decision.
