Time and why we never have enough of it.


No, this tweet is not inspired from Interstellar, although what an amazing movie. I can now totally forgive Matthew Mcconaughey for doing those bizarre Lincoln commercials.

Coming back to Time, Buddha once said, “The problem is you think you have time”. There are only a few better quotes recorded about this elusive dimension. For the ones who are still not awestruck by the simplicity of this powerful quote, let me translate it for you – this was Buddha’s way of politely asking all us lazy asses to get up and get on our chores, things on our bucket list, those what ifs that will bother us for a lifetime, and do all of it now.

With every fleeting moment, we are heading towards death. Sad as it maybe as a thought, it’s equally liberating. You have nothing to fear but a lot to regret. If you are stuck in a job or in a relationship with someone who is holding you back, call it quits. The freedom you will enjoy is bigger than all the complicated barriers your mind has set for yourself.

You should be with someone, professionally or personally, only if they allow/help you to make the most of your time. So by that logic time and people are related. No wonder with the best of friends hours feel like minutes. Apply that same logic to everything in life – choose better people for a better utilisation of your time.

Think of time as a currency, you buy everything with it – happiness, satisfaction, memories. Now relook at your life. How well are you spending it?

I hope to get rid of some of my addictions that slow me down. If you too are struggling with time, tell me your story, together, we can take on time!
