Where did the time go?

So many questions and issues are related to time that there must be some sort of time management method to follow.

Do you sometimes wonder why your life is run by your day planner, calendar or someone else’s schedule? You have too much time, not enough time or too little time. Where did the time go and, my, how time flies!

What is this thing called time? Is it real or is it something that was made up just to see how far you could go before you realize that it is running out? Split the word in half and you get “ti” and “me.” Look at the expressions “the hands of time” and “time on my hands.” What do they mean?

Why is time such a big deal? How do you deal with time? Time does have a hand in your life — right? Is time an accurate or inaccurate measure of how you use it? Is time something you can spend? Or do you get spent by time when your time is coming to an end? Good grief!

So many questions and issues are related to time that there must be some sort of time management method to follow.

Getting back to the day planner and calendar. Let’s see, on Monday you will do this. Now it is Tuesday and you should have done that yesterday, but it is Tuesday’s time and Monday is over. So you can either wait for the next Monday or beat yourself up on Tuesday, Wednesday and through the rest of the week because you should have done something during Monday’s time. You can continue to spend or waste time living in the past of should-have’s or you can focus on the time you have in more valuable ways.

So how can you spend your time in more valuable ways? One great way is to stop the clock. When you take the hands of time into your own hands, you will begin to see how valuable your time is and not use up one more second, minute, hour, day, week, month or year obsessing about all the things you should have, could have or would have done if you had had more time. You did have time. Time is only relevant to your involvement in how you use it and benefit from it.

Stop fretting about how you wasted your time. You cannot waste it. You used your time exactly as you did. Yesterday is the past. Today is the now — this is where you create what comes next, which is tomorrow.

You cannot spend time; it is not for sale. You cannot have too little time. There are 24 hours in a day. Use that time frame to get in sync with yourself and with the time you have in which to accomplish goals. Stop counting time as if it were sheep jumping over your head. Linear time on the clock moves even when you are stuck in the past or caught up in the regretful or remorseful thoughts of should-have’s. Stop going back in time.

Give yourself a handful of time — use it wisely and productively. Start living in each today. Today is tomorrow’s yesterday. Time belongs to you. Use time as the perfect tool to unfold each one of your days. Each day is a framework of time with which you can structure your creativity and your life. Time is on your side. It is both behind you and in front of you. Make your place in time the perfect moment and space for you to be.
