We live in an age that values the timely.
We race to tweet or post, to catch the continuous wave of conversation that runs 24/7/365.
The rewards of timeliness are great; it allows us to influence and persuade.
It burns like a firework, lighting up the sky.
But in our haste to live a real-time life, we must not forget the timeless.
As the saying goes, a day-old newspaper is good for wrapping fish. What use is a day-old tweet?
The timeless seems slow, is slow.
The timeless is a slow burn, not a bright flash.
It lasts and delivers value long after the timely is forgotten.
Take some time to do the timeless, not just the timely.
