realists believe that time is a fundamental structure of the universe, where
things happen in a sequence, in a frame of space where how long it takes for
things to happen, can be measured.
philosophers, on the otherhand, believe that time does not refer to any kind of
thing that flows, nor it is a container for events. That it is how we see
things happening ~ intellectually. Or in simplified Barbsie terms ~ itís
happening, but the way it is happening, is all in our head.
The Bible says that there is an appointed time for
everything in Ecclesiastes
A time to give birth, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to tear down, and a time to build up.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones, and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search, and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart, and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent, and a time to speak.
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time for war, and a time for peace.
Dharmic religions believe that time runs in a cycle.

think the time has come today. For me to embrace a new take on time, what it
should mean to me and how I should go about using it. It should come as no

management isn't about time or management. It's about knowing what's important in life. We often don't know
what's important to us. Hence, the crisis, the burnout, the stress. We fight to
achieve what we 'think' (or what people tell us) is important, only to
discover that things of true importance are left behind. This is why
often we DO so much, but ACCOMPLISH so little. Because we
forget the true
accomplishment is not mainly about 'doing' but about 'being':
a good parent, a good friend, a good spouse, a good mentor, a good disciple, a
good leader. And these things are less about activities than about a good heart and knowing what touches
people's lives. So, time management is priority management. It's role
management. Itís the management of our being.
right when you think about it ~ I may have been doing so much about everything
and anything, but at the end of the day, I have accomplished nothing.
If I do
not acknowledge that I have not been managing myself correctly, I will
continuously run around in circles, chasing after my own tail, and wishing
forever that I could always go back to yesterday.
The time has come today.

For time is perpetual. And it resets itself to where your present is. And it moves only when you do something about it.
And if I am able to accomplish all the above, in time to come... I don't think I will have the need to feel that I should move to Spain.. or Boston.
