I’m no longer hiking the PCT. That is both a blessing and a curse. I’ve started a new chapter in my life and I think I’d like to use this page for ramblings associated with it. I’ve frequently been thinking about time lately and more specifically time management. I seem to have huge chunks of my day that aren’t really filled with any concrete activity. My interests are varied and when I stop and think about what I want to do in either the present or near future I am sometimes overwhelmed. I think, “how can I accomplish all of these things?” Well I usually don’t and the less important activities are (mostly) dropped by the wayside. But I know there are people out there who accomplish so much! I wonder if I’m lazy or are those types of people inherently different than I am? Is it actually within my ability to accomplish so much? We are all given the same number of hours in a day. The other way I tend to think that calms me is that I should not do so much and that less is more. There are benefits to reflection and stillness and simplicity. They can provide clarity in your life. I certainly learned this while hiking for four months. But now I’ve just added another thing (this blog) in my life that will possibly take away from some other thing. Oh well. I need to fix the flat tire on my bicycle so I can go to school without burning so many fossil fuels and get some exercise and be in the environment instead of protected from it.
