48 Laws of Power: Law #35 Master The Art of Timing

Law 35: Master the art of timing

  •      Never seem in a hurry, always seem patient
  •      Sniff out the spirit of the times, find the trends that’ll give you power
  •      Learn to stand back when not ready, and then strike

First, BUY A WATCH. Yes, even in the 21st century when we all have phones in our pockets a watch is still a valuable tool. Having the exact time in your field of vision at almost all times is crucial when it comes to timing. It wasn’t until I started wearing a watch and keeping track of my time that I realized I was always in a hurry when I had no need to be. I always like to arrive early to places (if you are on time, you are late) and I always felt in a hurry, but I started to actually use time to my advantage.

Next, you have to let time work for you. Know that THE TIME WILL PASS ANYWAY. If you are choosing to waste your time looking at cats on youtube or whatever, just realize that time is going to pass no matter what. Take the time to think if that is how you want to be spending your time. Sure it is, you don’t have to do things til later right? Wrong. YOU CAN DO THEM NOW. Time now is the same as time later. A second is a second, an hour is an hour. Don’t waste them when you can use them.

Lastly, you will never be seen as hurried, if you are already done. If you get on top of problems IMMEDIATELY you will be in complete control of your time. Don’t be the person working on things, that process can take as long as you let it. You want to be the person already done. Do it early, do it right, do it once. This also makes it so you don’t have the weight of all these deadlines or works in progress to complete.

Timing is Crucial!!
