When Time Means Nothing – And Everything

When Time Means Nothing – And Everything post image

I’ve just pulled out of a hellish 36 hour transit to finally land in glorious Istanbul.

Think 4am start, 3 hour bus, 3 hour wait, 9 hour aeroplane, bus, 7 hour wait, another aeroplane, coffee break, metro, tram, ferry, walk up a steep hill.
Here.

Ahhh.

Finally.

In the last 36 hours I’ve been in 3 different time zones, eaten 5 ‘wrongly timed’ meals and slept about 6 hours of totally inconsistent dozing.

It’s so damn easy to get into the “I haven’t done enough” headspace.

 

At least once a week, my inner Mean Girl (aka, the bitch who lives inside my head) kicks in and lets me know that whatever it is I’m working towards, I haven’t done enough of it.

 

It could be cleaning up, spending time with my Grandma, or even hanging out in this creative playground, but without a doubt, at least some point during the week, Mean Girl-Chloe will pop up, screaming “you need to get your ass back to that computer/sink/rocking chair and keep goiiiiing”.

You know the feeling.

 

You’re constantly busy, you’re overwhelmed, you’re always running, running, running from one place to the next.

 

You’re lethargic, overworked and just plain ol’ tired.

Sure enough, you’ve got a Time Block my lady.

 

Time Blocks are these nasty little buggers that crop up when you don’t have control over your time – you’re subconsciously creating busyness for yourself.

 

Sometimes, they manifest in the form of tasks, appointments or one too many catch-ups, but as a whole, a Time Block feels like a big bunch of overwhelm and stuff  – so much stuff it means that you no longer control how much time you actually create.

 

Let me give you an example of a Time Block in action.
