Balanced Time

Everyone has a timekeeping device ticking away the seconds.  If you slow down, it winds down like an automatic mechanical watch.  If you're too active, you risk damaging it.  The temptation to wind it up manually can be strong.  Too much winding, though, and you'll damage it, as well.

Balancing wheels spin.  Gears grind.  Some wind down a little faster, some a little slower.  

Don't look at the hands too much.  At the same time, don't avoid looking when you need to look.  Make the seconds count.  Never count them.
