Often, it seems there’s never enough hours in the day or that several years go by before we know it. This quote, by Michael Altshuler, helps us come to terms with the fact that time tends to fly by. It marches on no matter what we do, and there’s no technology out there that can ever slow or rewind it. However, if time was an aircraft “flying by”, we are the pilot. And there are a couple things we can do to control its speed.
First we can change how we perceive each day and moment. This means not taking each day and moment for granted and being more in the present. Second, we can try to maximize the time we have by being more productive with it.
With these two simple steps, we can get our hands on the steering wheel, and maybe time will begin to feel less rushed and fleeting.
