The more we feel like we are running out of time, the faster time seems to pass. It’s as if the universe wants us to enjoy the time we have and not focus on that which we’ve lost or will lose. The rate at which time passes is always the same–a second is a second, whether it’s today or 10 years from now. The rate at which time seems to pass varies greatly. This interal time is what I call “pace”. Finding your pace is and living as much of life in it, is one of the keys to enjoying the time you have.

I’ve found that I thrive at a slower, unhurried pace. I like longer days that move forward steadily without urgency. To live at this pace, I have to wake-up early or make time the night before to prepare for the coming day. Without that, I find that I tend to be very reactive, rushing from one thing to the next and the pace of the day inevitably gets faster and less enjoyable.
