As our mind goes faster time slows down.
That is interesting. When you want something really bad you tend to think about it a lot, blocking out most everything else that you used to think
What about people who multi-task though? People who just seem to do it out of habit. ( That question, really, is for whomever happens to stumble upon
this thread after 3+ years of hibernation) You're obviously thinking faster because you have to take care of 2 or 3 things in the same time frame,
hopefully, that most people use to do just one thing. In that case, I would think that time moves quicker. Or at the very least, our perception of it
simply because we are perceiving and doing 2 or 3 things at the same time.
Now, those projects might take a little longer than most people would think they should take because most people don't multi-task on a daily basis.
So what they would see is someone piddling around on one project, and just when they think they've waited long enough for that one project to get
done, Mr. or Mrs. Multi-task shows up with 2 or 3 under their belt, leaving everyone to wonder " How did they do that?"
It's no mystery really because while you were focusing on that one project that you wanted done, the other person was focusing on 2 or 3 that NEEDED
to be done, so you didn't really see everything. Like a magician performing a slight of hand trick. You're focused on one thing while he's doing
This is why the perception of time is subjective IMO. Different people see things in different ways. Some people like to do just one thing at a time.
I think I'd go batsh*t crazy if I had to that because time would just d........r.........a...........g on. Like now, I've been having to wait for
someone for a few weeks now before they were ready to do something that was paramount to something I need to do, and as a result, everything else was
kind of put on hold because of that. Times like that is when I start doing more and more things, like post here just to name one, just to compensate
for that one thing I can't do. I understand that people have their own lives and schedule......but still
While this topic is interesting, I think the most interesting part of it all is that the OP has made just one post, this one, in 3 and half years.
It's almost as if he's biding his time huh? Just........waiting.
Hope he's listening to this...it's upbeat:
