49 - Time Is Relative

49 - Time Is Relative

In the special theory of relativity, Albert Einstein determined that time is relative, as the rate at which time passes depends on your frame of reference. The faster you move, the slower time moves.

In episode 49, Genny shared her thoughts on the subject of time. How we spend the 24 hours in a day. She also shared her experiences of not honouring the time by “cramming” more into her schedule than time would allow and, as a result, being chronically late.

Genny also spoke about the book, “The Big Leap,” by Gay Hendricks, and how it relates to time. Gay talks about activities that we do in the “zone of excellence”; activities that we do extremely well and that we make a good living in that zone. It’s your comfort zone. But living in the zone of excellence doesn’t always fulfill you; bring you that sense of joy and purpose. Moving into the “zone of genius”, you are doing activities that are you are uniquely suited to do. They draw upon your special gifts and strengths. Genny shared that when she’s in the zone of genius, it’s as if time stopped for her. A moment that took two hours seemed like only a few minutes. She was lost in the moment, feeling that ease, that joy, that purpose. She was lit from within.

Genny also shared Gay’s theories on the “upper limit problems” that can sabotage our good feelings and our good moments. By leaning into our zone of genius, we can fully experience all the good feelings and joy, without letting our ego deny us those feelings.
