Today as the clock moves back I reflect on time and our interpretation of it.
This year at our work conference the coach said something really important, he said next to God the other thing which is very constant is time. It has 24 hours in a day but we always seem to be surprised at the time when it is just doing what it is created to do? We say things like: is that the time? where did the time go? I don’t have any time for that and so on.
In England, the clock changes twice a year but even this inconsistency is also constant. However every year whether it moves forward or backwards we blame our lateness or earliness on this change.
Today as I watched clock go back, my thoughts are on my own consistency or lack of it. I realise that my progress is not in the big moves but in the consistency of the little things. Consistent small savings works better for me than one time massive deposit, 5 mins constant quiet time is better for my growth than an hour every few years, time is constantly moving and so must I.
I also reflect on the personal perspective of time, one day we were preparing to travel and I looked at the clock and went our dear this time seems to be flying, my son who was too excited to get on the plane went our dear how slow is the time going? Same clock we both looked at but from such different perspective, time was constant, it wasn’t going any slower or any faster. Our use of time rather determines how we experience its pace.
I don’t know what time means to you right now in your life but I hope the constant ticking of the clock will bring you some assurance or maybe just a reminder that you carry an assignment which is time bound.
for your consideration
