Hello and thanks for sharing your precious time here!
I am not flying a great flight plan in the time management department. Are you? Please share your secrets! I would love to hear from you in the comments section.
Did I ever tell you about my adventures in ground school? I was a great student in the classroom but my skills didn’t translate so well to actually flying a plane. That is another story for another day. But one thing I learned about flying that I remember vividly….
Plan the Flight; Fly the Plan.
Of course once a flight plan is filed, even the most brilliant pilots have to adjust their plans in the air due to ice, turbulence, pop-up storms or whatever obstacles emerge during the flight. I love the concept of determining a destination and at least planning for the route to get there (recognizing course corrections are inevitable).
I landed in California yesterday. I love the false sense of “making” time after leaving the Central Time Zone and entering the Pacific!
I wish I could plant seeds so more creative time would bloom in our lives.
I also wish that we could always, always honor time for the precious commodity that it truly is.
Just thinking about time management led me… to well, fulfilling an idea I had about up-cycling a clock. After disassembling a clock, I gained access to the protective bubble barrier of the clocks’ mechanics. Adding a transparent photo to the inside was simple. The challenge was putting it all back together again! I glued a crown embellishment to the clock and called it completely customized.
This was a labor of love (it’s a gift).
I wish I could make one for you. I just might take “orders”! Stay tuned. Go embrace the moments of the weekend stretching before you!
I leave you with a Green Day hit from 1997.
Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)*
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go,
So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time.
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life.
So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.
