Time Zone Abbreviations


Perceptions of time differ depending on our level of attention and engagement.

Time also varies when we are physically halfway around the world from someone. When exactly is now?

It becomes complicated when dealing with people of different cultures. In Mexico the word 'mañana' is often mistranslated as 'tomorrow' when a far better translation of 'mañana' is simply 'not today.'

The new great time war - There's a new view to the timescales. Heraclitus declared that all is flowing: you can’t step in the same river twice. Parmenides, on the other hand, thought that time is an illusion and all is fixed and permanent.


When you need to schedule an online conference or telephone call, punctuality counts! And if you're working around the world, it's best to compliment real time with asynchronous communication.

Developing sustainable practices requires improving communication over time. Continuity is one of the best practices to overcome the stones in the road.

One example. Relations among government tourism officials and media could improve by understanding responsibilities and expectations. Many travel writers complain that it is difficult to get timely information from official sources. Other writers take years to develop books or features, long past the time the officials are in office. There is no one size fits all solution!

Recommendation: When attending meetings and events, use Lombardi Time.

A Few words about real time and Asynchronous Communication

One example is the television series '24' in which the events occur in a linear and concurrent fashion as opposed to cutting to other times earlier or later than the action depicted or compressing time. In a real-time computer games, events in the game occur at the same rate as the events which are being depicted. On TV the best example are sports played in real time.

An e-conference can include elements of both real time and asynchronous communication. Online chats can be scheduled for instantaneous conversation. Conferences can also allow participants time before and after to read in-depth materials and make comments.

In short, we engage in real time and via asynchronous communication all the time. We read the news stories that were written less than a day ago or guidebooks that were sent to print a year ago. We send an email to a friend or post a message on a public bulletin board that may be read in five minutes or in five years by someone we do not know.

More real-time


A friend in a rural village asks how travelers can enter the 'rhythm' of the community, rather than ask the community attend to the traveler. Of course, a compromise will be met out in different ways in different circumstances.

The show doesn't go on because it's ready; it goes on because it's 11:30.
- Lorne Michaels (quoted by Tina Fey)

The greatest gift you can give is your time.
- Popular saying

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
- Popular saying

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
- Albert Einstein

To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.
- Leonard Bernstein

We have lost our sense of time. We believe that we can add meaning to life by making things go faster. We have an idea that life is short — and that we must go faster to fit everything in. But life is long. The problem is that we don’t know how to spend our time wisely.
- Carlo Petrini, Founder of the Slow Food Movement, September 2008


If you are scheduling a real-time conversation with someone in a different time zone, you might want to set up a clock showing their time. Your office might look like a newsroom or hotel lobby, but it is critical that you are fully aware of the other time so that you don't make a call in the middle of the night.

Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is measured on the Earth's zero degree line of longitude, or meridian. Using the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England as the starting point of determining time zones around the planet, GMT was established in 1884. Generally, if you are in a country east of the Greenwich Meridian, your local time is ahead of GMT. Examples: China is GMT +8 hours. West of the Greenwich Meridian, local time is behind GMT. Local time in Mexico City is -6 hours.

GMT makes me nervous

Caution: This is NOT the current local time in most locations in that time zone

Europe: Only some locations are currently on GMT because most places in this time zone are currently on summer time / daylight saving time and are observing IST or BST.
