Time moves as fast as you want it to. I was reminded of this recently as I was traveling. Out of my normal routine at home and work, I found myself with what appeared to be enormous freedom. I made the most of the change and tried not to worry about what was happening elsewhere, just what was happening around me.
Without any places that I needed to be or people that I needed to see, I was able to do what I wanted on my own schedule. Time seemed to flow--and I had time for everything.
Now that I'm back home and about to start work again, I'm working to let time flow as it did while on the road. How will I do it? By not pressuring myself to make every contact that I need to make with a sense of immediacy. Some things just take time to work themselves out--and this requires patience.
Instead of forcing my way through the day, I'll take it as it comes while keeping an eye on where I need to go.
