Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life by Marney K. Makridakis
Genre: Self help
Publisher: New Library
Source: Sent by publisher for review
Most of us have said, “If only I had more time,” as a way of explaining why we aren’t leading our most fulfilling lives. This book turns the concept of time management upside down by presenting exciting new tools for viewing and experiencing your time. Creating Time combines creativity with science in a gorgeous colorful format that presents a fascinating adventure in which you will imagine, create, and completely reshape the way you experience time. Each chapter presents a shift-making concept illustrated by real-life examples, step-by-step introspective processes, and powerful creative projects that inspire a new sense of time, a liberating view of self, and a fresh perspective on the meaning of being human, empowered, and fully alive.
What do you think of when you think of time? Do you wish you had more time? If you answered yes then this book will help you rethink what time is and how to make your life better. The author starts each chapter with a poetic pause that “explores time through a metaphorical lens”.
She gives you an Artsignment to explore your feelings about time in the hopes it will free you to change your thinking and gain more time and reclaim your life.
I enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who feels there isn’t enough time to get everything done.
