Managing your time is incredibly hard in today's world. Email, social networks, news, apps, places, things, books, relationships and one-on-one interactions - there are many that require our attention.
With such diverse sources, things don't happen in time, they simply surface like infinite waves in an ever present ocean.
This is the side of a communications utopia that we wanted but not quite anticipated.
You dip your sense into this ocean and scoop up a sea of things to do, and ideas to think about.
Your mental near field is an idea forest.
Its far-field is receding farther as you move faster towards it.
Abundant, yet mercurial, filling, but unfinished, pointed, yet leading to aimless frittering of your time. It seems that those magical pyramidal neurons have caught their idea virus and are unable to rest. Time passes, yet there is no end in sight.
How do you create your purpose? How do you manage the flow of time?
In the journey from ignorance to information, we are slowly getting away from wisdom.
In our growth from abundant suffering to on-demand pleasure, we need to continue to have a keen appreciation for boredom and struggle.
Give time. Take time.
