I often wonder how any of us are able to manage our time… Every day we are unwillingly challenged to a dual against the relentless, unforgiving and all powerful force of Time. It never stops, it never hesitates, it just keeps going as we watch the seconds go by which are now forever in the past. Time will test us for the rest of our lives.
But it serves many purposes… Especially when it comes to creativity. (Below is one of my all time favorites of Calvin and Hobbes)
“Creativity: the ability to make new things or think of new ideas” – merriam-webster.com
Do you know how difficult it is to create new things and think of new ideas? It’s easier to come up with excuses why we can’t… How do the innovators of the world come to possess such abilities to create something new? I can’t answer for them, but I know for me, I just have to step outside of my comfort zone and just do it (Please endorse my blog, Nike 🙂 ). It’s ridiculously scary to think how short life can be and we shouldn’t waste it coming up with excuses why we didn’t do this or that.
“You may delay, but time will not.”
― Benjamin Franklin
Mr. Franklin makes a valid point, don’t waste time… That is why I created this blog, to step outside of my comfort zone and create something I’ve been talking about for a while now. My friend and I were discussing how we both wanted to start writing, quickly we came up with one excuse and then another, but realized we don’t have time for excuses and put our words into actions. Challenge accepted…
We should all embrace the challenge that time has offered us and accept the outcome when it’s over. Time won’t stop and let us go back and try again, but hopefully we will have learned from the experience. So when the opportunity to battle time again arises, we will be able to approach the situation a little wiser.
