Timely and Timeless

We live in an age that values the timely.

We race to tweet or post, to catch the continuous wave of conversation that runs 24/7/365.

The rewards of timeliness are great; it allows us to influence and persuade.

It burns like a firework, lighting up the sky.

But in our haste to live a real-time life, we must not forget the timeless.

As the saying goes, a day-old newspaper is good for wrapping fish.  What use is a day-old tweet?

The timeless seems slow, is slow.

The timeless is a slow burn, not a bright flash.

It lasts and delivers value long after the timely is forgotten.

Take some time to do the timeless, not just the timely.
