Psychological Time vs Clock Time

Time is an illusion. In the words of Albert Einstein quote,

“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.” The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” “Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.” “The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

Einstein has said it all. The psychological time bothers on the past and future. The psychological time is not helpful, it is not valuable, it is not result-oriented. There is little you can do with it, there is never a time action is taken in the psychological time, it is only existing in the mind.

The Dilemma

Unfortunately, most people are living in psychological times. Psychological time only bring disappointment, trauma, sadness, hatred, bad feelings, forgiveness, anxiety, sleeplessness, fear etc.

The Reality

Clock time is the NOW. All accomplishment in the world is made possible in the NOW. Every work or action is taken in the NOW. You can use clock time for planning, organizing, scheduling activities, researching, collaborating, setting goals, travelling, expressing love, dreaming and visualizing. For instance, your yesterday love may not have a positive impact on your spouse compare to the one you express at the present.

Clock time has the power to generate positive emotions. You only be happy in the NOW, you can only enter into partnership NOW. You can only work on your goals today.

The Solutions

Don’t be carried away by psychological time. Let psychological time not be your dwelling domain. It will never add to your success but rather take away from you. Remember, even yesterday mistake can only be corrected today, and you can’t correct it if you continue to live in yesterday.

Make good use of the clock time(today), it is the gold you should mine.

Thank you for reading my 1kobo thought to the end.
