2. Time is art. Our lives these days seem dominated by time as science: the clocks that schedule our lives, the algorithms that guide our choices, the billable hours that shape our business, the marketing that drives our consumption, and more. There is value in the science of time as evidenced by the formation of the drop as it falls into the water. However, there is also value in the art of time as evidenced by the reflection of the flowers in the drop. This led me to engage the beauty in the moment more often as a way to remember our shared humanity.
3. Time is. In our narrative coaching programs we talk a lot about how stories are formed from disruptions and point toward desires. It is easy to get caught up in all the disruptions around us, which often leads us to feel like we are not getting to our desires. This photo was a reminder of one of the questions we teach coaches: "What is this story trying to achieve or resolve?" Time just IS, but we can define it by our disruptions (or our distractions) or by our desires. It is about allowing ourselves to remain present to what is so we can connect more deeply to ourselves and others.
How can you experience time differently today?
