Timeshifting is about slowing the feeling of time rushing by.

It's about feeling you have more time.

It's about getting control of your time.

It's about not feeling busy all the time.

You will end up getting more done- but that isn't the aim. If that's the aim you just end up feeling stressed and battered.

With timeshifting you shift your perception of time. You slow time down. That way you get more done and you feel less stressed.

The key to it all is learning.

When we learn, actively, time slows down. It's as simple as that.

As we get older we tend to occupy and enjoy positions where we don't need to learn anything.

We finished all that when we were in our 20s.

Travel is the only way many older people learn, because when you travel you can't fake it- you really don't know what is going on a lot of the time.

Ever noticed that the years when you travel the time didn't rush by? And in reflection, does it seem that you had more time then?

Because you were learning new things.

This is the essence of Timeshifting which I'll elaborate on and go around in the following articles.
