Making Time

By Mort Crim  

 

The passing moment is all we can be sure of; it is only common sense to extract its utmost value from it.

W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM

Henry David Thoreau’s classic, Walden, he shared wonderful thoughts about time — that nonrenewable commodity none of us seems to have enough of these days. He once called time “the stream I go a fishing in.” Why is it that the more devices we come up with to save time, the less of it we seem to have? The answer is that you can’t save time. You can only employ it. We can bank money or stack things on shelves. Yet time walks with us, like our shadow. We use it in a moment or lose it.

Another great thinker, India’s pacifist revolutionary Mahatma Gandhi, said, `There is more to life than increasing its speed.” Slowing our pace no doubt would help us get more from our minutes and hours. Like Thoreau, we might benefit by spending more time fishing in a stream, walking through the woods, or breaking our routine to watch a sunset. But save time? Forget it. Every new time-saving device invented is just another way to spend time. We’ll never find time for anything. If we want time, we have to make it.
