An observation – Everything takes longer than it used to! Unrecognized passwords, new regulations, changed business hours, and absent staffers all take extra time. What can be done to get us back on track?
I wake up before 6 a.m. on Monday. That’s my good writing time. Brain fresh, ideas conjured up overnight ready to spill out.
After a few cups of coffee, I glance at the clock and realize it’s nearly time to fix lunch. Turn my head a few times, and we’re watching late-night TV. Wake up the next day, and its Friday.
Wait a minute . . . wait a minute! WHERE DID THE WEEK GO? Who put our world on fast forward?
As a child, I can remember time practically standing still. The days were so long. It was hard to find things to fill in ALL those hours!
Today, the time goes zipping past. And modern marvels like cell phones and computers only seem to eat up time, instead of saving it.
Sure, the Internet brings us information instantly. But then you have to wade through it, and sift it, I figure it will take five minutes to find an answer. An hour later, I know more about the subject than I will ever use, and my “to-do” list has 11 items not yet done.
One thing for sure. Every minute is precious when you see it disappear this quickly.
This is one minute today that I really enjoyed because I got to spend it with you. Thanks for that.
