Time & parallax

Anecdotally, it seems to me that time is speeding up. Often this happens as one gets older. But it seems as if young people are feeling this too. I have been wondering why. 

When a train travels through the countryside trees far away seem to go by much slower that objects near to the train. This is ordinary parallax. Although of course the train is passing all the objects at the same speed.

What I wonder is that as more and more information is available to us through the internet and beyond, then this is like travelling in a train where everything is close. Everything is whizzing by at speed.

At this speed, are we making the right decisions? 

As a leader, how can you slow some things down?

Are there some things that need to be made to be bit further away so that you can gaze at them longer?
