How many times a week do you think,"There aren't enough hours in the day!"?
I don’t have time! There aren’t enough hours in the day! How to find more time in the day is one of the most common problems discussed at business training seminars, and it’s a constant complaint in most people’s daily life.
Many people who work long hours fanatically pursue time-management methods to take care of all of their pending issues in the least amount of time possible.
The excessive rationalization and planning of chronological time, understood from a technical perspective, has led us to accelerate all the aspects of our life, forgetting that there are things that can’t be sped up without affecting their quality.
One example is the gratification a person feels because he can send thousands of people a greeting card or a standardized letter simultaneously online. But it will never be the same as a unique letter written in a personal way to just one recipient.
Although we may have the illusion that we personalized something because we put the person’s name on it, if it’s a mass mailing, everyone knows that it’s generic — and it loses value for that same reason. We get to more people in less time, but how do we get there?
We cannot reach the same level of human relationship or depth if we speed up the means of communication. If we want to get to the truth of the other person, we need time.
The paradox of the technical progress and the lack of time
For some time now, our homes have had an endless supply of appliances and devices that have allowed us to do a lot of work in less time. It goes from the microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine to the speed with which we can handle things through our phone and its applications.
