Never Enough Time


Riddle me this! Or answer it

Until I am measured

I am not known

Yet how you miss me

When I have flown.

What am I?

It seems almost every conversation I have involves someone telling me how they never have enough time. Time to get work done. Time to relax. Time to sleep. I even had someone tell me they never had enough time to use the restroom, not sure how that is working for her.

Books on time management are interesting, but they too take up precious time. If everything today is automated and easier to do, where is all that time we are saving?

Wasted, of course.

Humans need to be busy. Hell, I can’t even sit on the toilet without feeling the urge to multitask there. Sad, right? The area closest to my toilet is very clean.

To combat the compulsion to do something at all times, I have learned to schedule myself to do nothing. I made doing nothing into something. The world has gotten too complicated.

The world has gotten too complicated.

What do you think? Are we too busy? Do you think our modern, busy lives are positive results from our technicality advances? Am I the only one that needs to multitask even when on the toilet?

Oh, you wanted another riddle?

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.

What am I?



Oh, you wanted the answers too?


Answer 1 = Time
