Do you ever wish that you had more hours in the day?
Do you long for more time to do the things that you want to do, rather than all the errands and work and things you “need to get done”?
There’s a persistent conditioned belief promulgated by “productivity experts” and time management gurus that we can’t get more time.
This is clearly a lie.
Linear time, time as measured by clocks and calendars, is a man-made construct, a system for organizing Earth’s relationships to the planets and it’s revolution around the sun.
We regularly manipulate it to give us more time, or at least the appearance of more time.
Under our current system, once every four years we don’t just get an extra hour in the day. We get an entire extra day.
The Hanke-Henry permanent calendar would change our current calendar for a system that gave us an extra week every 6 years. An entire week.
What would you do if you had more time?
Would you actually use it for the things you want to do?
Or would you fill that time with more ways to stay busy?
Today is Leap Day, an entire extra day.
This is the opportunity to answer that question not just in theory, but in action.
You got “more time.”
How did you use it?
Did you use this bonus day for what you wanted time for, or did you spend it doing errands or working or lost in social media or the internet, or otherwise being busy?
At the end of this year will you remember how you used your extra day, or will it blend in with all the other days?
You might realize that “more time” doesn’t help you do what you want to do unless you’re willing to break the habit of being busy.
