“Nobody listens any more, nobody pays any attention – and yet everyone demands our attention. I used to think that the world moved faster as we got older, that time got quicker!
That’s not true – it’s simpler than that – the world still moves the same pace, time still ticks along the same way as normal. We still have 60 seconds to a minute and 60 minutes to an hour – same as it was when l was a kid and yet time seems to simply disappear without a trace?
The truth is this – society has simply sped up in expectations of time – modern technology makes it appear that time is shorter – because everyone and their mother want a piece of our time.
The likes of the Internet, the good, bad and ugly aspects of this global cyber space makes it look like time is passing like water between our fingers. The Internet changed our world and our perceptions of time usage and wastage. Constantly we are barraged with adverts – none of which have sought our permission to display themselves to us – demands on the most precious of our commodities – Our Free Time.
And so, what comes around goes around – Nobody listens and more, nobody pays attention.”
“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”
