A Stitch in Time

A Stitch in Time by Danny J. Stevens

There is one resource which is the same for everyone on this planet.  That resource is available to the rich, the poor, the old, the young, the brilliant, and the challenged.   The resource can be managed but it cannot be stored for future use.  Everyone is given the same amount equally.   That resource is time.


The human race has had dreams of being able to alter time and travel from one moment to another with the hopes of altering events.  Many books and films have explored the idea and repercussions and consequences of altering time.   Each event weaves a web and touches and alters other events.    It would be difficult to determine what difference one life made.   A smile, a gesture, the words spoken or not spoken which  may have affected another person to do or not do something, say something,  pass on a gesture or maybe even a smile.

The common acceptance is that events in the past are what they are, unchangeable.  Philosophers caution that even if the events were changeable, what has happened has happened for a reason.  Worrying about an event in the past gives no energy or substance to the event.   Punishing yourself for something that happened is not going to alter the present or prepare us to alter the future.   It will help to keep us from doing anything to change the current events in the future.

There are ways to deal with the past.   The events are still in the past and are unchangeable we can change however our feelings towards those past events.    I would state that it is the feelings about the past which people would like to change the most anyway.  For those that disagree, I bet you would agree that changing those feelings would help. 

There are many ways to deal with your past and the feelings associated to it.  I have experienced many of these techniques and have read several books dealing on the concepts.  I will provide some sources which may be of interest to you.  You may find the information helpful or not. If it resonates with you and you wish to know more, please send me a comment.   I am not a therapist.   I am someone like yourself who has goals, wants and desires and I need a way to find more time or organize my time so I can experience life to the degree and level I have intended.  I have been looking for a process or system which would help me to optimize and be more efficient.

I have been a huge supporter of to-do list.  The problem occurs when you discover you have multiple to do list.  You will also discover that there are items on the list which you don’t reach.  We spend time rearranging the list and attempting to get to complete the to-do list on a daily basis.  I have heard many ways to sort, collate and massage a to-do list.  However I still felt stressed.  I still felt like I had very little time.  At the end of the day the same results existed in that key items went uncompleted.   If I was successful and finished large amounts it could be analyzed and I was busy doing things which robbed me from working on getting results.   (To be continued)
