Time and Discovery

“I do not want to waste any time. And if you are not working on important things, you are wasting time.” — Dean Kamen, inventor

“Time, time, time, see what’s become of me while I looked around for my possibilities.” – Paul Simon, composer


A double dose of quotes this week. Bookends, as it were.

I admire Dean Kamen. There’s an urgency to his view of time’s finiteness which is realistically sobering. I suspect he is referring to creative time, but it could just as easily apply to anything in which we find personal value. It might mean relationships, work, play, quiet time, reading time, exercise time, discovery time. And because time is finite and assumes a sense of urgency, our choices become selective in ever-shifting priorities.

As the summer winds down, enjoy the importance of your leisure and the possibilities to come.

I love your take on Kamen’s quote. I appreciate the nod to quality time on leisure. I need help in finding the right balance and not feeling guilty or maybe not guilty enough.
