Time to Stitch…
Your time is an extremely valuable commodity. Companies invest billions of dollars each year to try and grab your attention and divert your time towards their products and services.
Tech companies have teams of people creating ‘persuasive technology’ that they build into apps, websites, videos, newsfeeds, social media experiences, all designed to draw you in and steal your time.
Then there is your poor needlework. All your needles and threads just sit there waiting, wishing, hoping, that you’ll pick them up and start stitching. No voice, no tricks, no gimmicks, no proactive way of getting your attention.
Yet needlework has the most powerful tool of all – transformation.
One of the richest, rewarding and satisfying activities we can do with our time is stitch. It transforms us in a way few other endeavours can, but it does require something from us in exchange – it requires we give it our time.
So next time someone, or something, is trying to compete for your time ask yourself the question, is it as good as stitching? Our vote is probably not!
