The strategy conversation you can only have here
"Time flies", may be one of the most cliched sayings we use.
My physiotherapist on a visit this afternoon said, "I can't believe it is already October."
My father regularly shakes his head in dismay that another year has passed.
I remember my childhood friend Carol asking her mother, 'Which corner?' after being told that Christmas was just around the corner. Everyone laughed at the naivety of a child thinking about time in a way different to months, weeks, hours and minutes.
But is it really naive? Is time really fixed or can we think about time in ways other than what the clock tells us?
Here are some challenging thoughts about time:
Author Bondil Jonsson observes how the arrival of measured, accurate timekeeping became first our tool, and then our master.
As with everything we all have a relationship with time. Some are better than others. Is time our friend or our enemy?
Can time be used masterfully? For many business people, the constraint of time drives us to achieve more in less. Conversely creating open space, time with no expectations, allows creativity to be fuelled.
With time maybe it is a case of friends close and enemies closer?
