The Aberration of “Not Enough Time”

How often have you felt the frustration working with people and getting told: “I just did not have the time … Sorry, didn’t get round to it … Will do it tomorrow, I promise! (but tomorrow comes and no answer), I have been so busy …and so it goes! Apart from blaming others, we make excuses ourselves for our “So busy, never had a chance” lives. Looking into the Tech of LRH we will as always find answers.

LRH says “Time depends mainly upon the creation of new space in the MEST universe”. Looks good … but how do we do it?

The avoidance of reality is merely an avoidance of present time. Theta could be considered to be a sort of scanner which is motionless. It is not moving. The MEST universe is changing and interchanging, and the products and forms constructed and organized or regulated by theta change, and this change is in itself time. Time depends mainly upon the creation of new space in the MEST universe.

Well that looks like we have to be up in the OT band before we can do much about our “not enough time” problems … But let us not despair, take a look at what LRH says next …

The only tremendous error an organization makes, next to inspection before the fact, is failing to terminatedly handle situations rapidly. When I say terminatedly handle I mean finishedly handle. That it is handled and that’s all, boy! The fault of an organization’s woffle, woffle, woffle, Joe won’t take responsibility for it, it’s got to go someplace else, and all that sort of thing, is that it continues a situation. It just goes on and on and on until it finally gets somewhere, goes snap, and that would be the end of that situation. So what you ought to do is complete action now, in the first place. The other day I was looking at why I used to have a high stat businesswise and cinewise and otherwise, and I suddenly realized I was peculiar in the vicinity in which I operated. I ended cycles; I could end more cycles in less time than any organization could dream up. In other words I was concluding actions.

As with LRH Tech there is a simple basic answer as he states below: “Complete the action, do it now”. A simple mantra that should be chanted until it really groves in! But when enacted … a life changer, and surely one of the secrets of success!

If you do every piece of work that comes your way WHEN it comes your way and not after a while, if you always take the initiative and take action, not refer it, you never get any traffic back unless you’ve got a psycho on the other end. You can keep a comm line in endless ferment by pretending that the easiest way not to work is to not handle things or to refer things. Everything you don’t handle comes back and bites. Everything you refer has to be done when it comes back to you. Complete the action, do it now.

Having “not enough time” is just a feeling – we all have the same amount of time, but we often fill up the days with too much “stuff”. So to get cause over time: “Do it now”!

  1. Boy do we get caught up in this way of life! “Do it now…”. If one groves it in it certainly makes life easier!

  2. The answer is to write up a little Battle plan or to do list of all incomplete cycles, prioritize them, then systematically work through the list til all are done.
    It relieves all the franticness and pressure and suddenly life feels calmer, there is enough time and life runs smoothly.

  3. Great article! I usually find that when I write a Battle Plan I get a lot done at work. I need to start doing this more in other areas of my life, and also completing each cycle on the list!
