When people think of setting goals, they automatically think they will arrive at the outcome.
They become excited and can't wait to arrive there. So they work hard and make up their mind, stay committed and focus on the results.
When you set a goal, you are setting an end, which is good. However, what happens is that because the end becomes the main thing you think about, you overemphasize it during the process. We focus on the end and not the means. The ends are found within the means, that is, the process results in the conclusion.
The whole reason people feel stressed and unfulfilled is because they focus on ends and not means. Ends cause you to constantly evaluate yourself during the whole process, it is measuring you of whether you are good or not. If your measurements say you are doing good, you feel good, when your measurements say you are not doing well, you feel bad and unsuccessful.
Timefulness is the dream we’ve all been waiting for.
Most of us have been running a rat race, we try and get more and more things done and so we manage time to the utmost and we feel the most deprived. In effect, we become overwhelmed by the amount of things we have to do and we no longer enjoy the time we spent.
The concept of Timefulness is that there is always enough time, that everything fits within time itself. What we need to learn is more nuanced. It’s a two part process - the first being understanding efficiency and maximizing productivity, the second being, being able to feel relaxed and enjoy the process of it. Here is how it works.
