Since I was young when my Dad died I've tried to master time as well. I quickly figured the amount of 'alive' time was limited.
As a result, in my working life I had a lot of different careers. feeling it was like living more lives. Every job lasted just about 5 years and then off in a new direction and new, fresh set of experiences. One of my early friends told me to 'maximize fun'. For me 'fun and different' are related.
As we've aged and retired, we've focused on doing more of what we like, maximizing fun and attempting to avoid negative entanglements. In a small measure this required, at least for most of the year, divorcing ourselves from our past.
I read an interesting quote from Einstein today, than an on obtuse way applies to life and avoiding negative entanglements.
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Einstein
We're now in our 14th year of 7+ months travel. We feel so blessed to have had this time. Mastering time by having fun.
