Here is the question: What would you do if you have all the time in the world? Obviously a fictitious question. Before you cast it off as nonsense, the question is nevertheless useful in teasing out one’s interests.
I will start. For me, I would . . .
(1) get enough sleep. Sounds trivial I know. But given how irregular my sleep patterns has been, being able to sleep through the night is a luxury that I can only dream of right now. I would love to have getting enough sleep as the norm.
Speaking from experience, I used to take a three weeks of vacation toward the end of the year, around Christmas and New Year. It would take me a few days just to relax and unwind my bio clock from the 9 to 5 schedule. But after I made the transition, I slept like a baby and woke fully rested. A wonderful feeling.
(2) take my time reading. Whether it’s online or the old fashion paper, I would just take my time in absorbing the information. Understand, digest, and internalize any knowledge from the material. Enjoy the reading process. No speed read, skimming, cramming. No hurry which takes all the fun out of reading.
Unfortunately, that is what I do in the office or at home. Tons of email to read. I feel my job is sometime relegated to how many email I can delete.
What would your answer be if you have all the time in the world? I will share more of my answers in the next post.
