June 1st Already?

I am freaking out a little.

Where the hell is time going?

I know time is not really going any faster, that it is just my perception of time that is skewed, but that intellectual understanding doesn’t make it any easier to swallow.

Is it the massive amount of grey hairs that are taking over my head?

Is it the awareness that certain parts of my body are no longer where they were a couple years ago?

Could it be that turning 40 in a few months be part of it?

Probably all of the above.

If I let myself think about it, I am probably going through a bit of a mini-mid-life crisis. I have had them before- don’t we all? The anxiety that we should be doing more, that we should be farther ahead in our lives, wondering what our lives would look like if we had zigged instead of zagged.

I picked up a book at the Reference Library several months ago but have not taken the time to read it. Recently I have heard increasing mentions of it in the media and now a relatively new friend of mind has become an acolyte. You may have heard of “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss. His blog is quite informative though I haven’t had the time to really explore.

The basic idea is working smarter, not longer and harder. This goes against the typical 9-5 drudge where it is almost more important to be a bum in the seat than to be a productive bum. Some interesting ideas so far but I am only about a third into it.┬áMaybe, after I have read the book and adopted his “way,” I will no longer be stressed by the passage of time. Or, I will have so much time on my hands to concentrate on those things that energize me that my perception of the passage of time will slow down

Who wouldn’t want that?
