"Of Swimmers and Late Bloomers
Most often we ask ourselves questions of when, rather than what. We ask ourselves, "When will I get the job; when will I fall in love; when will I pay off my debt?" Subconsciously we fret over the whens as if dreams expire with time, and passions decline with age. This attention to when we learn and not what we learn reinforces the fear that time is scarce. When in fact, time is not scarce; there is a surplus of time."
