The first answer that came to my mind was simple and it was like: YES, we have time and time is the number seconds which makes a minute if they are 60 in total which makes an hour if they are 60 in total which makes a day if they are 24 in total which makes a week if… and then I ended up to a year if we have 12 months you know, etc.
The question came in my mind again, do these numbers of seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months, years, decades, century etc relate to my achievement in anyway? This question helped me to understand why these first founders of time formula came with idea of TIME.
I discovered that there is a great relationship between TIME, SPACE and MOVEMENT, and whenever you remove one of these three, there is no time and this again cleared my confusion on whether there is time or not.
Before I explain in detail on time, space and movement, let me make it clear to you that if time cannot be there or if it can be there depends on how you participate in the process of making it, as I will explain.
Try to reflect on these two scenarios in your life: what happened when you were idle in terms of time length and if you compare that length of time to when you were busy working? If you are honest, the truth is that time was too long like hours were not moving forward during your idleness while time was too short like hours were moving fast during your busy moment, right? Why is this?
The answer is that, time is found whenever there is a movement from point A to point B, and without any movement within this space you will never see or find time.
Here we already have space now; we need a movement which will be a work or activity we undertake to activate the process.
If, for instance, the activity is reading a book then that is a movement already, by the moment you start reading you are moving from point A to B and now you can start seeing TIME counts itself fast, if we didn’t have a minutes and hours formula then you could realize how the sun is setting itself fast and the opposite is true for whenever you become idle.
Therefore, big achievement comes when you accomplish a lot of things fast and for you to do that you need to increase the movement from point A to B i.e. you need to activate time by working hard and not being idle; otherwise, there will be no time that you and great success will ever come together.
The understanding of TIME, SPACE and MOVEMENT can help you to achieve whatever you want in life, this is my thought for today.
