30-Sept-2013 What I’ve learnt

Monday 30 September 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

When I woke up this morning I still felt shite and wondered whether to stay home sick or work from home, but decided to bash on anyway, after taking some hayfever meds. I worked at Kogarah and arrive approx 9.30am but left a bit early although my condition did improve a bit.

I went for a nice swim just before it got dark (approx 6.15pm now) and then a brief run.

I was ready an interesting blog from Sarah Wilson about “Build gaps in your life. pauses. proper pauses” which of course borrowed from an article about Thom Yorke from Radiohead who is an incredibly interesting person in how own right ie even discounting his vast musical talents.

I definitely find myself wanting to hit the pause button to actually take the time to enjoy stuff.

Like Thom I also do feel the pressure of time marching on”.

However when I got out of the sea after my swim this evening, and was towelling myself down, looking at the setting sun I reflected on what I have learnt : After more than 30 years of running, I know a lot about running (much more than many so-called professionals know), but since I have kicked off yoga, kayaking, surf lifesaving, crossfit, ocean swimming, I realise that each of these would require 20-30 years to master and there just isn’t the time! Let alone all the other activities I know absolutely nothing about. It’s so frustrating but resolved to ensure I don’t spend time on stuff I don’t care about.

It comes back to that old phrase I heard from Paul Weller (The Changing Man):

The more I see – the more I know
The more I know – the less I understand
