TEMPORARINESS

28th August 2018

Being in business invariably means being busy. I do not think I am unusual, in that it is easy to slip into a mentality that everything is important. I don’t have enough time to do everything and all of my responsibilities lie heavily upon my shoulders.

This state of mind is exacerbated by the giddying expectations created by digital communications. The sense out there is that if a response is not received within hours then you are ignoring or neglecting that person.

When the world starts to shrink inside my mind, when my creative spark starts to dissipate and my natural enthusiasm wanes, it is time to access more freedom in my thinking by meditating on the temporariness of everything.

Like the English weather, all states of existence change. Nothing is permanent. Time changes everything. In the same way that clouds come and go, we are all born and we all die. We can only do our best and it helps to remember that all things pass. Nothing is ever as good as we hope. Nothing is ever as bad as we fear.

This does not excuse us to be irresponsible. And it does not imply there is no meaning in life. It just means that, by remembering that all things come to an end, we gain some healthy perspective on our lives and we can take each day as it comes.
