Time relentlessly moves on in our lives. It always feels it is moving faster the older we get. The toilet paper roll effect, it spins faster as we get closer to the end : )
But even if we truly cannot SAVE time, they are not making more of it, but we can delegate or do things in parallel, or easier what layers on top of time passing is the persistence of: CHANGE
Note four kinds of change and be aware with life what you are experiencing.
1) Change just happens. The local restaurant closes, someone dies, your health fails, you get a new job, your roof leaks, the dishwasher breaks. Wear and tear rusting or growing in life. Change happens TO you.
Then we have three categories of you affecting change, change FROM you.
2) You sit on the fence and make NO choice to change. No choice is a decision. The deferred maintenance on your fence, the wind blows it down. Sometimes problems do go away on their own. The ignore barking dog, the homeowner moves. Usually this is not a good choice to sit on the fence.
3) You make a bold decisive action with clear thought, or haphazard, you set your sail AND, you go from point A to point B. You decide to move from California to Texas. You get the knee replacement surgery. You invest in a stock. You hire a company to get a new roof, and voila, hopefully the world is a better place and an accomplishment happens.
4) Then there is the same action as #3
BUT everything planned to go from point A to point B does NOT work. Your proposed business idea is a disaster and you lose money. The surgery does not work. Planting your garden the rains flood your flowerbeds and no rose bushes this season. You get the point. This can be the MOST frustrating of change. God laughs at our plans. Doing the same thing over and over and not working is insanity. You have 1,000 fishing poles in a pond with one fish in it. When there is no solution to a problem to be solved, a truth is to be accepted.
RECOGNIZE which of four configurations of change you are in, just happening to you, in your charge with no decision, effectiveness, or completely out of your control. It will help you deal with the next step, based on what you are experiencing and come to the grips of understanding persistent change in your life and in the world.
