Time Smart

Neville DeAngelou


Like any good mother, her desire was to have her child grow bright and bold, and to be full of good humor and wit, and to be generous and courageous and kind.

For, being such, how could anyone not have the most beautiful story?

After all, what is the code and concept of life, of living, of humanity, if it is not to find one's calling and to have that calling be greater than one's self; if it is not to pursue that calling and complete it with joyous self-respect?

_ Neville






The Conversation Continues


Mental & Emotional Wellbeing







"I reclaim my time."

"Time and money. They share a lot in common: both are measurable, and both are scarce. Both are what most of us would say are the most valuable 'things' we can have. We want more time and we want more money, and we work to get them." Time Smart by Ashley Whillans. Which would you more happily trade away today: your time or your money?


Parliamentary procedures facilitate a peculiar practice, apportioning usage of time in a manner I've always found fascinating. Proponents for and those against a motion or action are accorded, by rule, specific alottments of time to advocate for their cause.

Often these advocates re-apportion various cuts of their alottment to associates and allies to be used (pro or con) in support of their side of the motion or action. Wanting no leftover time wasted, misused or abused, these advocates reclaim what remains of their time by asserting, "I reclaim my time." They take their time back!

"Madam Chair, I cede the remainder of my time back to the honrable gentleman."

Ever since 'school days' learning arithmetic I've found this back-and-forth a captivating practice: that one can - in realiity - give away one's time; that one can - in reality - use someone else's time while that person is present, sitting right beside. This begged (for me) through time a funny number of intriguing questions. Oh, for example, what if some are treating time exactly that way beyond the confines of parliamentary procedure? What if we could reclaim our time? What if someone has claimed our time and is using it right before our very eyes, with or without our permission; who keeps track; who gavels the clock, where is full accounting? Fascinating! Perhaps what is said is true: it is the silly question that yields wisdom.

Let's say if you take stock you could reclaim your unused time; how much time would you estimate you could legitimately reclaim? What would you do with it?

Over recent months, ongoing, our collaborative (RyoCenter) is expanding. We are birthing and preparing to launch several exciting projects, programs, and services, available for the enrichment of our beloved communities and collaborators, as well as for parents and their children, and for our mentees and mentors.

Time and again, over say two years, a compound set of questions has frequented us, that much more regularly during current expansions: how do you get so much done - with so little - in such short time - in the midst of so much drama; where do you find the time; do you have a secret battalion of elves working busily through the dark?


In fact, we employ a highly effective process, which we've branded layering! (It embraces an uncommon perspective of time; our methods have matured beyond arithmetic; and it pays attention to silly questions.)

I respond, not to discuss its details, rather because by way of juxtaposition it is necessary to engage pivotal relationships, so we are able to observe the usual give-and-take of time-and-money, and because, as anyone can attest, change and adversity come so thick and fast they are whiplashing weary folk. We've chosen approaches that work better for what we do. How about you?

Indeed, a stark clarity glares at a pall of global, regional, and individual traumas prevalent in simultaneity. Meanwhile, ongoing progress prevails among pockets of people possessed of passion and promise and peace. What's awesome is that these latter care appropriately (not prognosticating nor pontificating in the presence of an avalanche of assaults) and they cut through the usual noise to faithfully address real causes of such affronts. We find this to be revitalizing. Inspiring. Fruitful.

No silver bullet! No singing angels on white horses! No tooth fairy!

Metaphorically speaking, if happiness embodies (pragmatically) promise and passion and peace - a buoyancy handy when traversing weather-beaten oceans and seas, with equal capability to support travel along troulbled rivers and rapids - perhaps the magnificent mix enabling this buoyancy come not merely by how well one balances or juggles time and money, rather it is the peculiar alchemy of one's intention, time, this happiness, and money, gracefully matured in the warmth of an enabling community. (We will unpack this. We find a lot of good stuff in there. And pretty useful.)

Meanwhile, how about your turn for a fruitful share: what is or has been your experience in times like these?

Were you to trade one of those today - time, intention, happiness, or money - which would you trade to gain balance? What would you trade it for to assure that balance?

How would you responsibly define then gainfully employ each of the following:

  • smart time?
  • smart intention?
  • smart happiness?
  • smart money?

Isn't life fascinating? We think so.

Supreme Champions DO THINGS differently!

- you can too -


Harvard Professor, Ashley Whillans, author of Time Smart, makes the point that freeing up time from activities that don't make you happy and filling it with activities that do can improve your well being.

There is strong evidence our well-being is tied to how we value our time relative to all other aspects of life and how we use that time, not just what we use it for. How do you value time? How does that value account for where you are in life?

Professor Whillans suggests a few ways to help shift focus and take control of our time:

  1. Track your activities to figure out how you spend time (reframe your attitude toward time by having a better understanding of how you make decisions).
  2. Cut out activities that make you unhappy. (Recognize which of your day-to-day activities hold real meaning and give you a positive feeling; find ways to do more of those). Do unpleasant activities less; if these must be done, reorganize into better ways of accomplishing them.
  3. Use leisure time wisely. Doing the right kinds of leisure activities for every minute of time you make available immensely improves your well-being.
  4. Exercise! Exercise! Excercise!


We are WIDE OPEN wholly responsible for making our world a better place.


Nadal Explains



Today's pivot QUESTION: there are bumps on the road you have taken, which you anticipated and prepared for, and still you stumbled over them; they halted your progress,

what attitudes accompany such a situation and how do these affect or inform your next move?

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

Time is a Treasure

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

The Air We Breathe

Home is a special place. Love resides there. The best journeys take you there. Hope lives there. Home leaves no question about belonging. Friends belong there. Dreams thrive there. Home is a place of forgiveness. There is no rejection there. Home is a place of rest and recuperation and rejuvination. There is laughter there. Life takes you to unexpected places; love brings you home. At home you are free to flourish. It is where you birthed your wings. Are you there yet? We live amongst viruses and bacteria: some are villains and some are monsters. Don't feed monsters. Villains are everywhere; you are ever in their sights. Be prepared: find your rhythm, stay in balance, keep your values and your vision in focus. Choose your friends wisely. Breathe fresh air. Allow yourself the space to breathe. Allow others their space to breathe. Breathe.



Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear of sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.


2:26 AM - The Gathering

"I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.
