The trouble with time

the-trouble-with-time-xprimentSometimes it just won’t pass soon enough to get us where we want to go. Other times it simply flies away from our hands, leaving us in a state of denial/regret regarding the hours we still have at our disposal in order to finish our assigned activities. Deadlines, deadlines, sleepless nights and long day naps – that’s the trend, that is definitely not the solution.

Maybe we didn’t quite get the hang of it yet. Maybe it’s just going with the flow of our own existence, moving forward and backwards as we go down memory lane carrying our future desires around. Clearly we are missing out on a certain part of its message that is still so strange for us to understand…

Time management? Looks unattainable in a universe where new tasks seem to arise from every single passing moment, yet it is a term so often used to describe the problem of our generation. Whether it’s the approaching exams, the university papers that were due two months ago, the friend we still haven’t found time to meet up with yet, the weekend we still couldn’t organize because of all the other stuff we were doing (or not doing) so far, everything comes down to how we are able to prioritize and what we are willing to sacrifice in order to achieve what we wanted from the beginning.

Maybe it’s just a matter of time before we have time to organize our time. Or maybe we need to figure out the right tools to manage it.
