Random thoughts about our relationship with time:
- If you let it, time will be ridiculously scarce. If you don’t, you’ll be left behind fast in the high-competitive world. This is either true, or it’s a choice we convinced ourselves we have to take.
- It’s ok to take time to do nothing. But only when it’s a conscious decision. Having unplanned moments of “doing nothing” is a burden.
- We can’t feel bored anymore. If we do, we think there’s either a problem with our personality or with our habits (this one’s obviously easier to change). This is a good thing.
- Accepting that time is scarce is the first step towards full productivity and enjoyment of your decisions. Denying it (e.g.: by procrastinating) leads to more time-wasting.
- Narrowing the quantity of our relationships (therefore strengthening the quality) is a great time-saving decision. Weak-ties are useful, but “keeping in touch” is overrated. It’s much better to show up with a concrete need or proposal.
