Editorial Review

Non-linear time management is a commitment to action in the present moment. It’s looking at a task and choosing NOW or “not now.” If it’s not now, it’s got to be NEVER, or placed in a time capsule that has a spot on the calendar and therefore out of the mind. The mind must remain clear and empty of all future considerations. The old-fashioned time management programs had a huge, burdensome focus on the future. The line of tasks stretched out forever into the future. This resulted in massive, pathological procrastination. Everything got put off in the name of perfectionism. Therefore there wasn’t much astonishing success happening for the world-weary practitioner. But when people go non-linear, new life and energy come in. When they open their emails, they don’t save them for later. They have to deal with them if they open them. All fear comes from picturing the future. Putting things off increases that fear. Only a warrior’s approach will solve this. A warrior takes his sword to the future and to all circumstances that don’t allow him to fully focus.
