Space and time

Before I start, make sure to visit Merton Loft Conversion for all your loft converting needs!

When it comes to space and time, they are usually with or against each other, never exclusively mutual. When you compare it to any subject you think of how much times it will take, and then how much distance you have between where you are and where you want to go. When you think of something like travelling, the fact is that you miss out on a lot of time daily just because of the amount of space between where you need to go and where you already are. The further away something is, obviously the longer it will take you to get to your destination. Sadly, it is a sad truth that you miss out on more time travelling than you would like. If it takes you an hour to travel to work there and back, that will be two hours a day. If you work 5 days a week, then you lose out on 10 hours a week travelling. The fact is, that is a large amount of time. That is a whole working day that you lose every week just travelling to work. That is 40 hours a month. That’s a whole working week a month. When you then think of it in terms of a year, then you lose 480 hours a year. The amount of things you can do in that time is extraordinary, and quite frankly you will miss out on so much better possible things to be doing than just travelling there and back.

Then you start realising, how far away are stars? If it takes an hour just to go to work, imagine the amount of time it will take to get to any random star that’s in space. You could be talking millions of years. Another really interesting thing is that some of the stars you are looking at could already be dead. The amount of space between our planet and that planet means there are millions of lightyears the light is travelling to get to us. That is just how relative time is to where we currently are. Science fiction films get into this whole thing so much better than I ever could, but the amount of space between us and something that seems relatively close is amazing. We think time runs on the schedule we run on but it doesn’t. We notice it go past slowly or very quickly, but quite frankly we don’t get a say on how long it may take.

If everything could take as quickly as possible to do, then too much would get done. Everyone will always be surpassing you and you probably wouldn’t be able to keep up. The fact is, time and space allows us to stay level with the rest of the world. What we need to do as people is take advantage of all the time we do have at our disposal and make the most of it. While there are people out there who do not take the time they have seriously and let it run away from them, or do not take complete advantage of the time they have available, we can. I do think that a lot of the successes that I have had in life came from actually taking advantage of the time that I do have. Sadly, I have also noticed that most of the times in my life that I have come into a lull with nothing happening or nothing being the way I wanted or planned it, is because I made mistakes and didn’t take advantage of all of that time I did have.
