Imagine that you meet an extradimensional being. What’s an extra dimensional being? That would be someone who not only experiences the four dimensions we seem to live in (physical space and time) but enjoys a few more. He looks pretty normal, and might even be wearing a hat. However, there is one aspect of time that does not affect him the way it affects you – for him it’s not linear. For him, your entire life is a long licorice whip. He can see the start and the end. At any time he can take the licorice whip – in this case its the red kind – and he car curl it up a bit so that its all bunched up. Now that its bunched up he can jump to and see any part of it.
In an article called Time Compression and Productivity – Mindfulness of Moments I talked about how we seem to alter the flow of time based on how we feel about the moment we are experiencing.
Part two of our two part experiment. This time it’s the opposite of what we talked about last time. Instead of turning off the outward-in shields we put up – protecting us from possible harm – we are doing the opposite. Just for a day.
Do you multitask? Of course you do. Find out what actually happens when you do. And what’s the hidden glue that holds it together? Is it actually costing you more energy when you switch gears? Impossible you say? Find out about the myth, cheating the system in the wrong way, and cheating it in the right way.
We discuss why it’s not only OK to be bored, but how that’s actually a good thing that puts you one step ahead of a lot of people. We find out why you are bored and not surprisingly – we see how it’s related to time, energy and resources. Part one of two.
