If you could slow time, would you do it? I would. Hell, life is short, right? Peak life experience, often academically referred to as “flow,” is often associated with altered perception of time. A dinner session of belly filled laughter with the right friends can speed up time so much that before you know it, you look at your watch and it’s midnight. Conversely, a concentrated turn at the free-throw line can make seconds seem like weeks.
This, my friends, is the marrow of life.
Coincidence or not, activities that help you “time travel” seem to be rich in experience. I realized this today training at CFOx where the clock beeps every five minutes to indicate another round. I’ll have you know that there is a small section of rubber flooring at CFOx where five minutes lasts a lifetime.
Surely, when you tell your friends that you worked out for eight minutes at CFOx, no one is lining up to give you a medal, while you you might beg to differ. Don’t take these time altering practices for granted, no matter how challenging they are. You’re living in the molten hot core of life.
