Time management in the workplace is a real challenge. There are distractions, emails, meetings, deadlines, tasks, priorities, and we could go on and on and on..the list of things you have to manage can easily become overwhelming. So, how should you be managing time and become more productive? (spoiler: being faster does not mean to be efficient.)
There is no such thing as time management. There is only time management. This is what Rory Vaden tells us in his speech in Douglasville. “You cannot solve tomorrow’s problem with yesterday’s time management thinking. What can I do today to make tomorrow better?”.
How can we not appreciate a woman who talks about time management and…is always late? Laura Vanderkam says:”We don’t build the lives we want by saving time. We live the life we want, and then time saves itself”. Isn’t it true? Every minute we live is our choice, and we need to to take charge of that time.
Chris Bailey talks about his productivity nerdiness. Time and productivity are very much related, and they are very related to one another. He did some experiments, and argues that productivity doesn’t have to feel cold and corporate, and that it’s possible to get more done every day without hating the process.
