Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim your LifeBook - 2012
"Most of us have said "If only I had more time" as a way of explaining why we don't pursue a dream goal. Marney Makridakis has found that when we say this kind of thing it's because our sense of time needs to be adjusted. What we need aren't more hours in the day but to change the way we experience them. Makridakis doesn't pretend that our time is infinite but is convincing that our "losing" or "lacking" it is a matter of perception. Each of her chapters presents a shift-making concept (using everything from ritual and stillness to metaphor and visualization) illustrated by real-life examples, step-by-step introspection processes, and delightfully unique art projects. Innovative tools for the way we track and measure time are intensely practical but because the issue is also psychological, emotional, and philosophical, Creating Time also inspires a liberating new sense of self -- and of life itself"-- Provided by publisher.
