Your Relationship To The Scarcity Of Time
One of the most compelling aspects of our relationship to time is that time conveys the precious and scarce quality of each individual human life. Ninja Warriors meditated on the poignancy of the human experience of linear time, and they conducted themselves with great honor.
Steve Jobs said:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
What experiences with time’s limitations stand out that have caused you to appreciate your life more? Can you think of any specific decisions that were based in large part on the scarcity of time?
