KA1 COURSE: MASTERING OF TIME WITH RETHINKING IDENTITY  

TARGET GROUPS Course is relevant and suitable:  For many kinds of professionals (especially for those who are working with people), as trainers, leaders, and coaches inside adult education:       Achieving a more holistic understanding of mastering time through deeper addressing of an identity     Mastering time more efficiently on the subjective level, primarily linked to virtual reality     For professional and personal growing   For younger adults:      At strengthening their identity dilemmas due to today’s increasing liquid society.  For all other interested participants

A few rhetorical (more or less general) questions about phenomenon of Time:     How to understand the contradiction between Albert Einstein's claim that ‘time is an illusion’ with the fact that time, either objectively or subjectively, touch each of us, regardless, how (un)rich, (un)important, (un)famous, un(happy), (un)satisfied we are?      Why is mastering time nowadays more demanding than ever in human history?     How the virtual era influence the linear understanding of the time 'past-present-future’, which was typical for coping with the natural reality?     What is the main difference, based on which virtual reality appears as different as the natural (physical) reality inside the relation of time and space?       Is mastering time inside our natural reality (based on postulates of physical space and time) sufficient for mastering time inside virtual reality?     Why do we have the impression that our lives go faster nowadays, regardless that faster transport and smart technology should save us time, and not oppositely?      Do our impression (professionally and personally), that our lives nowadays run faster, bases on objective-natural or some other grounds?      Who or what pushes us towards faster behaviour inside modern society?

CONTEXTUAL BACKGROUND: Gap between objective measuring of time and its subjective experiencing      At objective measuring time is about the concept of time that enables us to understand and share the same objective perception of time (minutes, hours, days, years). This perception about time with objective units helps us in mastering our personal and professional lives, and it was sufficient for dealing with our natural reality and addressing time on the objective-physical level. While with the coming virtual era, another challenge has appeared in dealing with time. The gap between how we measure time and how we experience it subjectively has increased. It looks in this regard that the subjective impression about being under constant time pressure, more often originates in virtual and not natural-physical reality.   

The reason for the above complexity seems to be understandable. The existing approaches regarding mastering time mainly focus on the management issues (i.e., how to achieve all defined goals, how to make differences between more and fewer priority tasks, how to make distinctions between urgent and important issues, what activities to abandon to save time). Such addressing the time stands on the postulate, that time is an organisational challenge, concerning which we need to organize our lives as efficiently as possible. Such perceiving of time is understandable and rational when it comes to the practical-organisational sides of our lives. However, a more intense contemplation about time guides us to the finding that the central and the most significant challenge regarding time is how to perceive and master time on a subjective level. Namely, regardless of how brilliant we are in planning our lives, we cannot defeat the impression of running out of time, which has subjective roots, with organisational approaches and effectiveness (especially when we are getting old and we would like that time would stop). Virtual reality, inside which physical time and space are vanishing, pushes us additionally, that we need to address time primarily on the subjective level.

PUTTING MASTERING OF TIME INTO IDENTITY CONTEXT  Regarding addressing of time and its mastering on the subjective level it is urgent to understand our mind process to cope better with our increased subjective impression that our lives run faster. The deepening into our mind process requires a rethinking of the question: "Who am I as this entity who wants to master time?" Dealing with time in such subjective level is more archetypal and direct, based on which we do not give the central attention to organisational kinds of efforts, but we primarily focus on the revealing of 'who' triggers aspiration for mastering time.

Identity itself is a very complex phenomenon, which allows different interpretations. Inside humanistic doctrine, there are many potential relationships within which identity is addressable (i.e., between different perceptions of identity, such as personal-societal, real-virtual,  self-higher self, experiencing-self narrative, given- discovered). No matter which identity interpretation is in use, discussions about identity often address identity at young people whose identity is still under structuring. In connection with this, the phenomenon of ‘liquid society’ (Bauman, Eco, Galimberti) is often the subject of discussion (especially inside the last decade), regarding which traditions inside modern societies are weakening, and young people are facing an identity crisis. However, when it comes to the use of identity for mastering time, it seems necessary to have in mind all populations and not only young people, as all populations face dilemmas of coping with time. That is why the Course uses agenda of identity very specific, through developmental terminology and exposing several developmental elements (i.e., missions-what human do; visions-where human goes; potentials-where human is good at; driving questions-what human drive ahead). The Course reflects all these developmental elements in a way that rethinks them on more identity levels. The rethinking identity helps participants understand what inside their identity triggers their subjective impression that their lives are running faster and faster.  

PROGRAM OF THE COURSE:   Day 1:   First level of rethinking identity- Lighting of the existing situation at participants regarding four developmental elements       Content of the day:      Short presentation of the importance of mastering time nowadays, by educators      The participants need to choose many answers regarding the questions about mission, vision, potential, and driving question given by educators to participants. The specificity is that the answers are predetermined, and participants only need to choose the right ones among these answers.     Group discussion follows according to participants’ answering the outlined questions.     In the end, educators explain the logic of this level and why the answers that participants choose are correct or wrong

Day 2:   Second level of rethinking identity- Questioning the origins of the four developmental elements       Content of the day     The participants need to choose many answers regarding the questions about mission, vision, potential, and driving question given by educators to participants. The specificity is that the answers are predetermined, and participants only need to choose the right ones among these answers.        Group discussion follows according to participants’ answering the outlined questions.     In the end, educators explain the logic of the second level and why the answers that participants choose are correct or wrong, referring to the findings of the first level

Day 3:   Third level of rethinking identity- Dis-covering the essence of the four developmental elements       Content of the day:      The participants need to choose many answers regarding the questions about mission, vision, potential, and driving question given by educators to participants. The specificity is that the answers are predetermined, and participants only need to choose the right ones among these answers.       Group discussion follows according to participants’ answering the outlined questions.     In the end, educators explain the logic of the third level and why the answers that participants choose are correct or wrong, referring to the findings of the first two levels

Day 4:   Fourth level of rethinking identity- Finding the solutions for overcoming four developmental elements       Content of the day:      The participants need to choose many answers regarding the questions about mission, vision, potential, and driving question given by educators to participants. The specificity is that the answers are predetermined, and participants only need to choose the right ones among these answers.       Group discussion follows according to participants’ answering the outlined questions.     In the end, educators explain the logic of the fourth level and why the answers that participants choose are correct or wrong, referring to the findings of the previous three levels    

Day 5:   Summarising all levels of rethinking identity- Reaching the holistic understanding of rethinking identity in the light of mastering time       Content of the day:      Summarising the overall developmental logic about why such identity addressing is helpful for mastering time on the psychological level.       Group discussion follows according to participants’ experiencing a whole course.      Evaluation and final thoughts     Center Spirala-Center of Selfmobilty is a non-profit-ngo institute in the social and humanistic field, founded in 2001 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
