We get too hung up comparing ourselves with others in terms of “pace”- how fast or slow we move through life. And sometimes we get disappointed too when plans get “delayed”.
It has to do with how we experience time.
But think about this.
The ancient Greeks have two words for TIME.
1. Chronos – which means chronological/sequential time: the time of clocks and calendars
2. Kairos – which means a proper/ opportune time; the right time.
So whenever you catch yourself fixated on Chronos, perhaps invite Kairos in and ask, “What time is this for?”
