As people, we want to get a grip on the weather round us, together with time. We discover this within the clock that reveals us once we will be hungry, which determines the place our day begins and ends. Time turned a necessary a part of our existence. However no matter management we carry out, time retains ticking by on the similar tempo. Though the expertise doesn’t at all times correspond with what the arms of time inform us.
In any case, time has completely different sides, one thing the Greeks described as Chronos and Kairos. Chronos is what we describe because the ticking time, from when a hand was hooked up to the solar. Kairos is time as an expertise, the fitting time to get one thing carried out. These days primarily generally known as ‘stream’. Does the problem lie primarily within the sensible use of time as a substitute of making an attempt to tame it? One thing that Elke Geraerts properly describes as ‘letting go’ of desirous to handle time and actively prioritising your individual focus and the way you utilize time as your partner-in-crime. One of many dozens of ideas I took from her books is ‘conditioning your self’ to permit your mind to maneuver to that intense focus. I do that on the idea of a playlist composed on my own. Specifically chosen songs that encourage, propel me and get myself in ‘the zone’ very quickly. Welcome, stream!
