The older I get the faster time seems to pass. I guess it’s because adults are busier and have more on their minds. Maybe it’s also related to the amount of time I spend in front of the computer each day (too much). It seems that years pass by at the speed months used to last when I was younger.
When that happens, you start to notice better how you spend your time. You can almost see how each small daily choice of how to spend your time affects bigger things in your life. How bad habits and time waste quickly pile up. And how good habits are easier to acquire. Doing something for a few minutes each day quickly adds up to a new skill or a new way of thought.
I also started thinking more about how I spend every day instead of a goal I would like to achieve in the future. It’s a common pitfall to tell yourself that you’ll start doing something when something else happens. But while waiting for that something to happen, time is quickly running out.
