What is Time?

By Paul Hegarty

Although time is time, we could for the sake of understanding break it into time by the clock and psychological time. Time by the clock is simple, I have to be somewhere at a certain time, however psychological time is a little more interesting. I know myself through time, through experiences; I am this today I will be that tomorrow. We have the idea that I am this and I will become that.

We are going to try and understand time in its many faces. No, I was not referring to the faces of watches or clocks. I was referring to the many meanings that time has.

Picture a farmer who plants a sapling of a tree that would probably take ten to twelve years to reach the stage when it would start to bear fruit, by then the farmer would in likelihood be under the soil himself.

Picture a jailbird counting on the bars of his cell waiting for the seconds, minutes, and hours, days, weeks, months and years to go by before he can be free again.

Now picture a young couple madly in love with each other cherishing the few minutes they get to spend with each other every day, cursing time because it flies so fast when they are together and never the other way round. Time in all these cases, is measurement

So what does time mean to you?

When was the last time that you realized the value of time?

Do you know what is interesting about the concept of Time? It is absolutely uncontrollable.

Personally I believe that there is something very humbling about this concept. Just imagine, man with all his power is just like a helpless child before time.

And so now we come to our subject that is time management. I hope that I have made one point clear, that is, that Time cannot be controlled, it can only be managed. Managing time can only be brought about by understanding it.

The idea that you have time is false. The fact that you can organize using time, is true. What you do - and what you do not do - and what you have done, is related to time. You are the product of time. Born today, die tomorrow. It is not about what you do with time, it is seeing the fact that you are time. Managing time, means managing you.

A point that most people tend to forget is that time is the most valuable resource that we have, and time once lost, is lost for ever.
