If we do it now, we’ll never run out of time.
I really like this idea.
From a rational standpoint, you will run out of time eventually. But you won’t care as long as you are acutally present and working on something with focus and passion.
Have you ever worked yourself in some sort of frenzy over something? You probably have, but let me share this personal memory of mine:
I can clearly remember young me playing with lego bricks just for the sake of doing it. I did not know how much time I had and I did not care.
5 minutes? Go play Lego! 5 hours? Go play Lego!
Apparently the concept of “Meh, it’s not worth to start now, I just have some minutes left” is a mindset that we adapt as we get older but I want to encourage you to forget about it every now and then.
Because, let’s be honest: Those moments when we forget about time and everything around us, when we focus just on the task we are doing, the game we are playing, the book we are reading, the person we are talking to, those are the moments that actually make us happy, the moments that make us feel alive.
Those are the moments we want in our lives.
When was the last time you were so absorbed in an activity that you completely forgort about your surroundings? If the answer is not ‘today‘, make a ‘today‘ out of it today!
And now excuse me, I might have to fish my Lego out of the basement.
