"Soft Watch at Moment of First Explosion", Salvador Dali
In our busy world, a time machine would definitely be golden. But time travel isn't so difficult at all. In case you’ve forgotten, here are my top five ways to beat the clock.
Ignore all the mental blinking lights and stand your ground.
A good conversation is a fool-proof way to slow the passage of time-- on your whim. But a scattered mind can fracture the time-space continuum, so the trick is to really listen and concentrate on the other person.
Especially with someone who needs it. Like the person asking for change outside your office building. We all know that when you’re hungry, the minutes go by like days. Regain momentum together with a communal feast-- even over bottled water.
Pretending to give in to the oh-so-rigid laws of time can often earn you extra minutes when you need them most.
Watch others. See every stranger as a person-- and the grueling infinities spent agonizing over your own self-image will turn into insignificant moments.
