My mind often races past the present and into later. Throughout my life, I’ve always had a hard time relaxing if there was something pending that day. In high school, if we had a late practice, it was tough for me to enjoy a meal out. At work, if there’s a big meeting later in the day, my attention is typically on that until it is through. This gets in the way of productive thought. To look from a distance, a minute prior to an event, is no different than a minute after. It’s still 60 seconds.
