So Much to Do, So Much Time to Do It

I had a new thought today, just a little baby thought; it hasn’t grown very big yet and it’s still very young, but I’d be glad to introduce you to it, and let you take away your own impressions from it.One of our biggest problems is the modern world is that we’re far too busy trying to do far too many things, and it’s something I have blogged about in the past. Thinking about this today, and the phrase we’ve developed to describe it, “so much to do, so little time,” it occurred to me that maybe we’re looking at this the wrong way.Perhaps—just perhaps, you understand—we’re being too pessimistic about this. Maybe it’s not that we’re trying to do too much in too little time, maybe we’re just being too pessimistic. You have the rest of your life ahead of you, however long that may be, however old you are; you have a life ahead still, and you can make use of it until the day you die. Think about all that untapped time! Think about all the potential ahead! Why are you worried about yesterday, when tomorrow’s just around the corner, and today’s still here, not gone yet? There’s still a chance today! Just thinking about all that time I still have, not only to accomplish marvels, but to revel in and enjoy life—it gives me that warm-fuzzy feeling. We have plenty of time to put to good use! Maybe we have “so much to do, so much time to do it.” What does this mean exactly? Well that’s just it. I’m not entirely sure yet. But it’s something to think about. What does it mean to you?
