Episode 19: It’s About Time

Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.

Thank you for listening in.

The conversation today is about time.

I am joined by my sister, Sarah and my mother Frances as we consider the gift of time. How do we honour the moments that have been given? What tools can we use to achieve the best possible outcome for living a full and productive life.

Frances and Sarah

So put the kettle on and listen in as we discuss the exciting and sometimes nerve-wracking, to-do lists, day planners, and time management tools.

I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

Thank you for joining Frances, Sarah and me on Tea Toast and Trivia.

One last thought on time comes from the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus,  who lived in Ephesus from 535 BCE to 473 BCE.

“Time is a game played beautifully by children.”

May we remember that our time belongs to us.  And that we open this gift with the exuberance of a child.

Until next time, safe travels.

      Thank you, Liz for your amazing support and encouragement. You have truly made this day memorable for me. I continue to learn about how to use a mic, how to keep the discussion on topic and timely. I am trying to keep to the “less is more” theory. Do you remember that saying “priming the pump.” It was an old phrase that signified starting a discussion to spark an idea, memory or insight in others so that they join the conversation. We live in a world that has all the power and technology to connect, but a meaningful experience comes from a genuine desire to increase our understanding via a lens of others. Looking forward to our ongoing dialogue.

      1. My pleasure, Rebecca! Yes, I’m familiar with “priming the pump.” I use the phrase to describe certain types of course assignments.
