About Cho Seiri Calendar
There are two types of time. One is Chronos: time that is evenly measured by the tick-tock of a clock’s hand.
There is the other kind of time that is felt internally. It stretches out or speeds up depending on the moment.
That irregular kind of time is Kairos. To be able to understand the passing of time we make time visible and analog; we use sand in an hourglass or pages of a calendar.
This is making time into something that fits into your hand. After using this calendar we felt it is the connection between Chronos time and Kairos time.
"I am doing my most important work in the blank spaces in my calendar.
It might be possible that the person who fills his calendar up with appointments looks busy
but is actually doing very little work."
