SOme insight.....

2 days ago, i was running late and it wasnt until i got into the car, that i realised that i forgot to wear a watch. A little panicked but didnt bother too much about it.

Interesting thing is that i got so much accomplished. But more importantly, i felt freer. I did things urgently as usual but there was something different.

So yesterday, i deliberately didnt wear a watch. Just because. And again. A sense of ease.

Could the constant staring at my watch, watching time contribute to the harried feelings that are too frequently a part of my life?

Well i am not wearing a watch today again....

Moment of realisation, that is. Even though we usually think some things are "helping" us not knowing that they arent that much help but more problem than they help.

just admit that your aba-made watch has finally given up the ghost and we will take up a collection for you.

i feel you though. have you lucked onto the 8th habit of highly effective people here?

I stopped wearing a watch about 5 years ago. I just gauge things these days. Like you said, makes things a tad freer.

i feel lost, slightly unfocused without a watch actually... until i get used to not having one.

it's great that it makes such a positive difference in your life. make the most of it before it becomes just another thing you don't wear

I REALLY DON'T THINK SO BECAUSE THE, COMPUTER, CLOCK IN THE CAR AND ON MY CELL PHONE STILL GIVES ME THE TIME WHEN I NEED IT. I HARDLY LOOK AT MY WATCH COME TO THINK ABOUT IT.

I suppose the pressure is less, Uzo, when one doesn't wear a watch. I like to think I stop along the way to smell the roses daily. It kind of frees the mind.
