Interview with Marney Makridakis, author of the book Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life
Maryney Makridakis, author of the book Creating Time...
Since time is relative I believe we can control time’s relativity to affect the sense of our flow of time so that when we want time to slow down, when we need more time, whether it’s because we’re doing something we love and we want to relish it or we need more time to reach a deadline, we can control that.
How can you control time? Marney says first by using your body’s motion and movement.
Our inclination when we’re in a hurry is to go fast, right? Hurry, hurry, hurry, fast, fast, fast – when actually when we slow down and just imagine that you have all of the time in the world and just move in a slower more deliberate pace, that changes our perception, that makes time move slower. And on the other hand if you’re doing something that you just can’t wait to get over. Our tendency is to kind of drag our heels and go really slow when if you can flip into a physical momentum get music going, get your body moving – that makes time feel like it’s going faster. That’s a really simple application that really, really does work.
