I thought, “Where’d the time go?

I thought, “Where’d the time go?”

I remember like it was yesterday,

But last week, my daughter walked into school for the final time as a 4th grader.

I remember when I was in 4th grade.

I transferred schools that year.

Everything was new.



Even the building.

As we get older, time seems to accelerate.

But time isn’t moving faster.

There are always 24 hours in a day.

7 days in a week.

And 52 weeks in a year.

While time doesn’t change, our perception does.

When we’re young, we’re experiencing lots of new stimuli.

Everything is new.

Time seems to pass slower.

As we get older, the production of mental images slows.

And the sense is that time is passing more rapidly.

I’ve looked into the science and explored how to hack it.

Introducing novelty into your life creates new stimuli.

The stimuli make memories, which stand out and stretch time perception.

Knowing this, I actively try to break routines.

Go to new places.

Meet new people.

Be spontaneous.

Every night, I reflect on what happened that day.

I ask, what were the 3 highlights.

I visualize them.

The exercise helps burn the memories into my brain.

Does time feel like it’s passing you by?

Maybe it’s time for you to experience something new.
