Plenty Of Time (or The Perils Of Time Management)


a pile of old clocks

I was looking at the sheer number of the shots I need to get to finish this film a started to...let's say...get a bit anxious. None of them are very complicated. Few will take much prep. However; the sheer volume of them was overwhelming.


But I think the real problem is the overwhelm itself. If you check out the self help literature (which is what this film is about), the gurus talk about a "poverty mindset" VS an "abundance mindset". Now, I'm not sure that your thoughts can magically reach out and bring money to you. But I am sure that if you have tunnel vision and freak out about your bills, that it's very easy to overlook job opportunities and other sources of income.


And I think the same is true for time. I think that freaking out about how much you have to do and how little time you have ends up wasting time. You spend all of your time looking for efficiency hacks and worrying about deadlines and time management, and then you end up with less time and energy to do the thing.


You have the time to get it done. Unless you spend all of your time worrying about how little time you have.


Have a great day everyone
