I successfully, albeit inadvertently, depressed a friend of mine today when I asked him where he is now compared to where he was when he started off the year. “Today” isn’t bad. It’s easy enough to get through the busy work, but what actual accomplishments are we making? The year has flown by. Time in general seems to be flying by. And the only way to make it “slow” down is “be” in the present and “do” things that are steps towards accomplishing our goals. (As an aside, if we’re not doing those things, then maybe it’s because the goals we have are not really ours.) We joked about the situation. There’s something about the truth in jokes that make them all the funnier. Off the cuff he said the reason he hadn’t accomplished anything this year is because he didn’t make any plans at the beginning of the year. 🙂 Funny, but only because it was somewhat true. I told him he still has three weeks to do something. What (else) will you do in the remaining weeks of 2014?
