TIME VERSUS YOU!
how important is time over you in sports?
Time is just a construct. MAN-MADE.
But, It is not real.
When u are training, time stands still. Because YOU are so present in that moment that time does not exist. Only you and your body does.
Same way, time is linear only because we have made it so.
it is the numbers that make it linear. If you take it out. Time will still exist, not as a linear but as a whole. 360 degrees and all around.
So it is with sports. Time is of no essence to what you are and what you play.
How long you train. How many days you train, versus how you train and what you train for.
If you take away that man based construct called time. What will be more valuable in terms of sports then?
How you learn; how much you apply it and how well you execute your learning into your sport.
That will then be the measure of your time. How quickly and easily you do it or how difficult it is… is only something that is individual. It is not a one size fits all. Because time apart from being the linear construct which is the same for all of us. The 24 hours and days of the week, months etc… what we do within that frame work of time is what makes us who we are.
Time is very imp in sport because it is a measure of your ability. But your ability is not based on time. It is based on you.
It can only change the value in terms of time and its numbers . But underneath all of it is still the sport and again, YOU.
Your ability and capability changes time, time does not change your ability and capability.
Like in sprinting, you may take 20secs for a 100 mt sprint. You can change it to 9sec with your capability and ability.
And so, that 20 sec does not take anything away from you. Because it is who you are, not the time that you take. It only is of a certain value in that moment. Which can be changed.
Time too does not stand still, It is always changing. So are we and the sport we play.
ponder over and see where you stand in time!
