In the earlier part of this post, I asked you to notice how you experience time, as your first step in Time-Sculpting. I asked you not even to change how you experience time–just to become aware of where you are in time, five times/day.
Did you do it? Once a day? I did it with you. I do it often. I find that briefly reflecting on time is one of the very best ways I use time.
I asked you to take a week to practice this. During that time, I blogged about Peter Bregman,and discovered Ian Lurie. Lurie is best-known as an internet marketing genius and watching him demonstrate his work (click the link and you’ll read what I mean), it’s clear he is that. But I admire his thoughtfulness about time, too. Powerful change-makers are often powerful in more than one area of their lives.
Learning to time-sculpt will give you
- clarity about time as fluid and bendable,
- clarity that the way we experience time is of our choosing, and
- clarity that the way we live in time can become an art form.
So here is a gift: one final day for you to practice asking yourself
- When are you aware of the flow of time?
- When do you suddenly notice that a lot of time has passed?
- When does it feel like time is passing you by?
- Is it a pleasant feeling or frightening?
We’ll continue with the second step of Time-Sculpting tomorrow.
