MOTIVATION: Time Management

                              Rishave Verma

There are two ways to live your life. One as though nothing is a miracle, and one as though everything is.

                                                                           (Albert Einstein)

When one of the students asked Albert Einstein to explain his abstruse theory of relativity in a layman’s language, he answered, “A day spent playing your favorite game seems like a moment, an hour spent doing a job you hate feels like an eternity”.

Einstein was teaching that our experience of time is determined by the consciousness we are in. Since time is an illusion invented by human intellect, it is entirely pliable, expanding or contracting to reflect the thoughts we are holding at the time. We always have enough time to do what needs to be done. And when we talk about time management, we are basically taking about Self-management.

The fact is, time is a theoretical concept, and it can never be managed. The only thing which can be managed is our own self according to this concept. It is only when we haul the past or future into the now, that we feel bound. We have to handle whatever is before us, and leave the rest for another time or another way. When we live in present, miracles happen that defy laws of time.

Today’s Prayer:

 “Help me move beyond time, to live in the moment.”
