I’ve thought a lot about time these past couple of months. One of the things that I have learned about time is that it isn’t necessarily a set amount. We can actually bend time (at least our linear understanding of it) to squeeze more into it. Using our own energy and focus we can add much more to our days and our lives.
The Time We’re Used To
We see time as being linear. We are born, time passes as we age, then we lay to rest. Our day consists of going from one thing to the next based on what time it is. We make appointments, we work set hours out of our day. This is the linear time that we all know and are quite used to.
We’ve all been in the situation where we just wanted to be done with our day. Think of how it is after a long night drinking. When you’re at work the next day you have trouble caring about the work. Most of the day will be spent trying to stay awake. You stare at the clock just hoping that it will go faster.
Stuffing Time With Energy
What happens when more energy is focused in time? Would there be more time? I propose there would definitely be more time.
Have you ever had a day where you were in the zone? A day where you got so much accomplished and you were surprised that the day was only half over? These are the days where your energy was focused into time. The more energy you have the better your chance of this effect. Energizing foods, proper rest and doing things you enjoy will all have a great effect on this time/energy event.
