Einstein Time vs. Newtonian Time; Too Busy? Realize You Control Time

One of our all-time favorite books is “The Big Leap.” It is an extraordinary book by a Stanford PhD about identifying “upper limits” that hold people back. We think every professional should read it.

The book has another famous chapter all about time-management. The author drives home the point that we are entirely in control of our schedules; that nobody should ever be “too busy;” that time is 100% about choices; and that time is 100% relative to the task at hand and the urgency and enjoyment of the task.

The author makes a distinction between our classic notion of Newtonian (sequential) Time and Einstein (relative) Time.

If anyone ever thinks or says they are “too busy,” we highly recommend “The Big Leap” (once again), with a focus on the chapter about “time.” We also highly recommend never thinking or saying you are “too busy,” as hard as that is to do.
