Never enough

The chemical element is caesium and it is highly reactive and therefore very dangerous. Caesium explodes on contact with water and it’s radiation is what is used to define and measure a second. A second is the used to create a minute, which in turn is used to create an hour then a day, week, month, year, decade, eon.

Ahh I love time despite the fact that it doesn’t exist. Spend just three hours at nearly any work site in the world and you will hear complaining about schedules with time lines that are “not at all practical”, you may hear bosses complaining to employees about their tardiness and you could hear employees complaining to peers about the tardiness of the boss.  The funny thing about time is that it is the same for everyone and yet it isn’t is it. I only say this because not everyone in a work place will complain about time. Some people seem to be able to manage their time wisely and accomplish every task within parameters given. Why can these people be so much more productive than others?

There are dozens of books for managing time more productively, seminars  and retreats are held where masters of work place production give out the keys to their success. It seems that the people who are the most successful at managing their time all have one thing in common (besides of course their success) and that is they all realize that what is most important is not the time but the accomplishments.

See the thing about time is that well it doesn’t exist. All that exists are actions that we use to measure time whether it is the radiation from a highly reactive element or the completion of a work project. The important thing to remember about time management is that, it is not a matter of when but what. What have you done versus what needs to be done. We cannot control time but we can to a degree control what we do.

My favorite quote about time comes from one of this years best movies ever…

Everything will be all right in the end… if it’s not all right then it’s not the end” — Sonny From “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
