I’ve been thinking a lot about time. I hear the clock ticking, and I feel the passage of time in every muscle ache. The weight of all that has happened this year is ever-present as each day blends into the next. I want to be creative, productive, and efficient with my time. But I also want to think, explore, and allow my curiosity to travel beyond the limits of my imagination. As I explore new ways to structure my time each day, I also recognize the importance of free time. I’m facing several critical questions: How can I change my obsessive need to be busy? What is my relationship with time? Instead of focusing on every second of every day, what if I took a long-term view of time?
