Three Things to Do in a Hurry
August 10, 2017
I am in a hurry.
I do not like wasting time.
I have some time ... but not much.
I can either do something or write about doing something.
That gave me a title and a premise. What are three things a person can do in a hurry that are valuable in their own right and not just killing time?
THINK - That is one thing. A person can take a moment and reflect, retrospect, or connect the dots on multiple strands of thought. Not usually thought of as something we 'do," thinking actually takes some time, but can be accomplished in small bytes of time.
BLINK - That is another thing. One can close one's eyes and rest a moment. In that resting, one can meditate, cogitate, and integrate one's thinking and experiences. What is wrong with just interjecting and inflicting some margins here and there. If margins give you migraines, then migrate to the third thing you can "do."
WINK - Find someone in proximity to you and engage in a short conversation. If you must consider it networking, exchange business cards. Whatever you do, ask questions, listen, and mentally record what you learn. Talking to people is not just a space filling activity; it is life-enhancing.
If you don't care for those three suggestions, you can always just raise a STINK about how much time you are killing. I don't recommend it. I would prefer to use time to give birth to new and living ideas and relationships.
That is how I just spent the last ten minutes of my life since I started this entry. Now, I must leave for a meeting.
