Time feels so disjointed for me lately. If I don't spend time thinking about the passage of time, things start to lose their frame of reference.

For example, I've been trying to be very responsive to requests for information from my customers. Since I'm online for most of each day, I can generally respond to customer e-mails within 5 minutes. I figure that's a good habit to get into. It also lessens my need to manage my inbox content on an ongoing basis.

But anyway, I was just looking through my sent items folder and noticed that I'm really keeping on top of things by doing that. By responding immediately to these requests, I find that I need less time to follow up on things. That is, I'm just taking care of them as they arise.

I suppose that this is a luxury afforded to me by a relatively relaxed pre-holiday workload; if I start that new position in January, I would expect that the demands on my time will increase, which will force me to use contact and content management software to keep up with everything.

But until then, I'm deeply enjoying the experience of living in no-time.

Sometimes that kind of lack of sense of time passing is a bit creepy, when you "wake up" from deep, deep thought and have no idea how long you've been gone, 2 mins or 2 hours. But the deep thinking is oh so relaxing.

I agree. I probably won't be able to indulge in that too often once the baby's born though, so I'm relishing the experience now.
