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. Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life author, Marney Makridakis has found that what we need isn't more hours in our day but a change in the way we experience them. She turns the concept of time management upside-down by presenting exciting and new tools for viewing and experiencing time. Creating Time combines creativity with science in a gorgeous colorful format that richly inspires as it presents a fascinating adventure in which readers imagine, create, and completely reshape, the way they experience time. Each chapter presents a shift-making concept illustrated by real-life examples, step-by-step introspective processes, and powerful, unique reader-designed creative projects. While the latest time-tracking and productivity aids can be of some help to us, they are limited in their effectiveness, since the true nature of time extends beyond the chronological hours displayed in our wristwatches and smart phones. Instead, Creating Time addresses the psychological, philosophical and emotional aspects of time, inspiring a liberating new view of self and a fresh perspective on the meaning of being human, empowered, and fully alive.
Marney has a free event tomorrow night from 7-9 pm at Milepost 5 located at 850 NE 81st Avenue, Portland OR.
