It is a curious thing to think about the speed of life nowadays. A steady pace is no longer deemed sufficient as we run from task to task, optimizing all that we can in the pursuit of more.
I am sure that we have all recently heard things like “Where has this year gone”, or “It’s Christmas already!” Twenty-four hours are not enough and the week goes by without being seen. The weekends? I have friends who say they have not felt them since high school. Really, time seems shorter, more condensed, and entirely out of our control.
Of course, what has actually changed is something we do have control over—our daily lives and how we spend them. This is obvious when you think about it.
