Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
 
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
                                                                  The Time Keeper – Mitch Albom
 

Inspired by the new novel from Mitch Albom, today’s apple is about connecting you to your inner self. The you that is, not the you that its time to be. Today, drop the watch. Its not going to be easy I tell you. With so many clocks around you (and I was surprised when I started counting). The Cell phone, The Car, The Microwave, the Oven, The Clock, The TV channels, there is time clicking all around us. And it might be an effort, but the way it worked for me was to set the clocks to a random hour. Like 4 pm to start with in the car, and 11 am in the oven. Confuse the clocks, confuse the time. And be one with your self, with nature.

As you drop the watch (and try to do it on the weekend, don’t go to a 4 pm meeting at 11 amJ ), try to listen to your inner self. Eat your lunch when you are hungry, not because its 11.30. Take a nap because you feel like it, not because its 3 pm. Go for a walk because you want to, not because its 6 pm. Listen to yourself and do things that you want to do NOW, not because IT’S TIME.

One of the yummiest apple I’ve tasted. Hope you find this one yummy too.
