60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: Time to Choose What You Really Want
by Diane Wyzga | May 19, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in San Rafael, California!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
I’ve been slowly making my way through a sobering and humorous book entitled Four Thousand Weeks – Time Management for Mortals by Oliver Burkeman. According to Burkeman the average human life span is only 4,000 weeks. Now what?
Now we get to choose what we need to accomplish and what we want to accomplish. The world is awash in possibilities. We’re taught that we can have it all, do it all. They got it wrong. Just because it’s there does not mean we need it, want it, or will get it.
What we can do for our peace of mind and productivity is to reorient our understanding of time and our place in time by embracing ‘finitude’. Yes, there’s a finish line dead ahead. But, instead of experiencing despair because we’ll never get to it all, we can ask, “What is the best use for this portion of my time right now?”
Question: What will it be?
