Understanding African Time

Why time is such a sensitive issue is because it defines our awareness of space and others. As the world keeps shrinking in front of me, I feel like perception and use of time remain the few concepts resistant to globalisation. Time is where globalisation stops. It puts communication and adaptability of human species to test.

The World Through a Child's Eyes

I'm sure most of us have witnessed totally inappropriate comments from children which often seem to be voiced at full volume in the most public of places - for example, "Why has that woman got a moustache?" in the supermarket queue. There is nothing malicious in such observations, just curiosity. No offence intended in the slightest.

The Irreversible Reality of Time

For years the years seem to have been passing by more rapidly than the last. As a child, I remember adults commenting on how quickly I had grown, and how time was flying, but I never really got it.

Instead of taking 5 minutes to build one chart and being stuck with one insight, you'd see all possible insights in a short amount of time. What time trends is your data hiding from you?

Just making a few changes to the way you organise your time can enable you to be more efficient, reduce your stress levels and result in you having more free time.

Racing Against Time

If life flies by this quickly, we need to make the most of it. Take every opportunity that comes long, as you might not get that chance again. I'm pretty sure that when I look back on my life, I'm far more likely to regret the days I wasted doing nothing.

This is probably one of the hardest articles that I've written, simply because stress is highly personable and there are so many different external factors that can influence the stress-state; however with this being said, when in that state there are some quick and easy things that you can do.

About Time: The Day I Left My Daughter

About fifteen minutes ago (so it feels like, but according to records it was September 1992) I landed at Lancaster University as a fresher. I can still see it as a film, smell the cleaning fluid corridors, taste the tears, terrified in my bare room, burying into my cuddly panda for comfort. Time to be an adult.

We (Don't) Have All the Time in the World

There really is no reason for being tardy. So to all those people out there who are forever late, you better have a half decent excuse. Or have just dropped dead. As excuses go, I reckon that's as good as any.

Learning Something New... Everyday!

We rarely have time these days to stop, to pause, to think and more importantly to observe things around us. The smart (or dumb) phone, depending on your point of view, has drawn our attention and taken up even those few extra minutes of spare time that we have.

Slumped Over Your Desk? You and Everyone Else.

The business world seems to have woken up in the last 48 hours. It's September, the schools have re-opened and people are sleepwalking back to work after a summer break. But just because we are physically back-at-work, it doesn't mean we are all mentally and emotionally there - the lights are on, but nobody is home in many cases.

Is Time Travel Possible?

The surprising answer is: nobody knows. Physicists, despite trying for almost a century to rule it out, have so far failed. The known laws of physics do not forbid time travel. In fact, they appear to make it easy - at least in principle.

Toxic Education

Kathryn Lovewell

The main culprit is not the curriculum content or assessment design or even the management style. It's actually the lack of space and time within the structure that causes so much of the stress and disharmony. Education toxicity swells as basic human needs are left unattended in the system.

Carpe Diem

Each of us has grieved or will grieve in our lives at some point: a tragic death of a spouse; an unthinkable loss of a child; the memory of a lost friend - humanity inevitably will rob us of someone we love. It is at those poignant moments when we will stop and notice time itself.

Those who are inconsiderate, selfish, mean, or generally repellant to people - they tend to upset this equilibrium. At the other end of the scale, there are those who give the extra mile. These are the people that become successful. And all that giving makes them happier people.

Are you Smart With Your Time?

Being smart with your time doesn't mean you do more work. It means you get smarter around the tasks that matter. Using time smartly means not focusing on how busy you are but on results. Staying an extra hour at work at the end of the day may not be the most effective way to manage your time.
