“I Need More Hours in a Day!” Can Relate? Here’s Why

If you’ve ever found yourself up in arms declaring that whoever decided that there are 24 hours in a day just wasn’t right, you know you’re not alone. As human beings, we all experience the heavy current of time one way or another. When its productivity on the line, we can feel especially peeved by the idea that we have no say in time.

This is the trouble. The passing of time relative to what occurs as it happens can be overwhelming. It really can feel like a race. Sometimes we feel like we’re running it at high speed with the current and flow, and other times we think that we’re struggling to stay above as we swim upstream. These are most often the times we begin to question the system.

The Perspective and Relativity of Time

When we’re unwilling to change our perspective about why time feels so limited, there’s only less room for development. As complicated as it is, it is also simple. Time, like many things in life, is relative to perception and dependent on the individual. It is so beyond easy to find something to blame for sucking our time, be it relationships, work, or life’s inconveniences and must-do’s.

Time is Relative

The truth is, because time is relative, it’s all about choice. Every decision we make about time matters, big and small. We make these choices so often it’s possible to become unaware that they’re being made at all, and by extension, their impact.

For example, let’s say we have a mother that feels she needs to go to a certain grocery store that’s a little far, and this ends up holding up her process of making dinner. This might, in turn, make her late for picking the kids up from practice.

It would seem logical at that point to feel frustrated about the time practice lets out, and perhaps that coach insists on the team having longer practices on certain days, and so on. When we’re blind to what it is that drives our decisions and the direct consequences of them, we blame outside factors. And who takes the biggest hit in this arena? Father time.

How to Make the Most of Your Hours

They don’t have full-on courses for time management for nothing. Managing time is a skill and a valuable one at that. Not everyone has a natural ability to sort out time in accordance to perfectly manage everything on their plate, and most people don’t.

Thankfully, it’s a skill that can be built upon. Try implementing these principles to see if you can have a better experience with your time:

Don’t get frustrated about not having the time, and don’t convince yourself that you can’t make it. Instead, make the most you can of what time you do have.
