Losing Track of Time
After a week and a half away from home and on a family retreat in the mountains, I am losing track of time… In fact I am so used to life on the retreat that I am not sure how I will adapt back to work when it is time… Not to worry, I am just going to enjoy the moment…. and lose track of time.
Losing track of time is a special thing….. I am thinking about other times that I have lost track of time. It seems to be when I are fully engaged in something I enjoy. As I get caught up in my passion, time flies past. Before I know it the outside world disappears and I am focused on my passion. Some call this being in the “zone”.
Is this a good thing?
I tend to think mostly yes….. However we need to ensure that we are not neglecting important people and things in your life. So beware of what is happening around you and ensure that important people are given the time they require.
So while I am on retreat, I have spent time with the family, been able to work on a plan for the next twelve months and maintained a good fitness program. Even though I still have a number of days to go, at least I know that I have a plan for when I get home…..
- When is the last time you lost track of time?
- When in the zone, how do you maintain a balance with important people in your life and important things?
- What are you plans for 2014?
