You know that saying ‘Time flies when you’re having fun’, well I’d like to redress and say ‘Time flies.’ That’s it. I really don’t know what happened to last week, or the week before that. In fact, this year is flying by. I am finding it increasingly difficult to find time to blog, read blogs I follow, comment on my Facebook page, now Twitter and in between all this, write, edit, maintain my home and work. Is it just me or has this digital world-the information age-created a time poor environment?
I’m quite good at organising my time but finding it harder and harder to finish jobs or even starting them. Even while writing this post I am very conscious of the time because shortly I need to head off to tutor a student. So what I’d like to know is time speeding up? I read a great book called The Schumann Frequency by Australian author Christopher Ride. It is a novel but he did refer to scientific facts. In short it’s about time speeding up and with it chaos: the increase in natural disasters, crime rate growing exponentially, basically how life is affected by this anomaly. Sound familiar? One just has to read the paper or watch the news to hear something terrible going on.
As they say, something has to give. I will still be blogging and keeping up to date with Facebook-ing and twittering but not as frequently as I have done in the past. For me it is important to work on my manuscripts, critiquing and submitting to agents, plus have a life! But I’d still like to know if others are finding it just as difficult as I am??
Now I really got to go!

Time hasn’t sped up. We are just bombarded with choices. But what you might need to do is some meditation. Or cocentrate on your dreams a bit more. Dreams do unfold in a different time dimension.
I have to admit not being very good with meditation. Have tried but don’t have the mental staying power. Will give it another go though. Now the dreams well they are cryptic and have trouble deciphering them. I have asked for guidance so hopefully they will become clearer. Thanks for the tips Paul, will give them both a go 🙂
I watch through the wormhole with Norman Freeman, and in one of his shows he mentions something about that. I think what happens is that we are so busy and focus on the task at hand that our minds loose track of time. So, when we look at the clock again, hours have pass and that is when we (at least I) feel that times is flying. hehe Good luck with your work. 😀
Now that is an interesting point and it is true that when I am busy and focussed, time just speeds by. Still feels I’m chasing my tail though! Thanks for the pep talk. 🙂
This served me as well ;D
TOTALLY know what you mean by time just flying! It seems as soon as I’m complaining about tomorrow being Monday, I’m turning around and fretting about it being Friday with barely a paragraph written on anything. I agree with the comment about there being too many choices. Facebook, blogs, and the like are awesome but they also tend to give off that feeling of obligation. I’ve found the best way get a handle on it is give yourself permission to take a break.
That is a wonderful suggestion. I think that’s what I will do. Thanks Julie 🙂
