I think it was Einstein who postulated that time would slow down as the speed of light was approached. I feel like that is what happening to my statistics. I find it to be true in many aspects of my life. I am not a person with OCD, but I do count. I am a pedometer geek and I faithfully record my steps every day. I put on my pedometer as soon as I get dressed in the morning, wear it throughout the day, and finally remove it when going to bed. If the pedometer doesn't record for some reason (the main reason being stretch fabrics), those steps don't count.
Lately, because of the weather, I haven't been putting on the steps that I expect. While I try to make the recommended 10K, I don't always do it, but I still expect to get at least half to three-quarters of that. The last couple months my pedometer statistics have been embarrassingly horrible. Frankly, there have been days when I struggled to get more than 2K. As spring weather approaches, I will be getting some more walking in, and thus more steps. At least, I hope to and those statistics will rise as the temperature and weather improve.
I am also counting down my days to retirement. I am also counting the number of shifts I have left. While I will always be a pharmacist, I am retiring from active practice as of the 31st of March. That will be one of two shifts I have left. In other words, seven days, two shifts...and counting!
More Einsteinian than that, though, are my statistics here. As I approach "the speed of light" (that is, a particular number (again, 10K) of hits), I am finding that they are slowing down. I had hoped that I would make it on my (one-year) anniversary here, but it didn't occur. Perhaps, I am just too impatient; perhaps, like steps that don't get recorded, it doesn't really matter. Perhaps, with my retirement, I am slowing down time in more ways than one.
