“You’ve got to grind, grind, grind
At that grindstone
Though child’ood slips like sand through a sieve
And all too soon they’ve up and grown
And then they’ve flown
And it’s too late for you to give”
The turning point for Mr Banks in Mary Poppins is when Bert manages to get through to him. The change in the man is amazing afterwards. I see so much of myself in pre-epiphany Mr Banks and Bert, as they represent being not aligned with TMTWGR and being aligned with TMTWGR, respectively.
The companion movie called Saving Mr Banks demonstrates how the main message was always about Mr Banks as opposed to Mary Poppins. Definitely worth a look.
Just over ten years ago, I had an epiphany that became the life philosophy that I’ve been trying to live ever since: Time Makes The World Go Round (spending your time wisely is the key to happiness and money is just an expensive distraction).
Ten years on, I reckon I managed to stick to the philosophy about half of the time, and this has made all of my time useful for supporting the TMTWGR philosophy itself: when I was living it, I was very happy; when I was living in a way not aligned with it (putting money first), I was miserable.
Now, in August 2017, I’ve launched my own limited company, Time Makes The World Go Round Ltd, and committed to living the TMTWGR philosophy 24/7, and sharing as much as possible with others … like your good self.
I’ve chosen to do the sharing mostly in blog form to make it relatively easy to write and easy to consume. But I also have a Facebook page, Twitter account, Instagram and YouTube account too (complete with theme tune!).
On a related note, it is my intention to never put a money-barrier in front of any of my content (i.e. keep things free to access), so that anyone who might wish to spend their time reading it can do so.
Hopefully the time you spend here will be worthwhile to you!
