Time management for mortals
I loved this podcast episode. It’s about time management, but that sounds boring so I’ll try again. It’s a snippet from a course about optimising your time, and in particular how striving for more efficiency / productivity can actually make you more stressed.
There’s a great example about the person who replies to emails faster, which ends up with them receiving more emails. Why? Because you set expectations of availability, and become relied on to get..it…done. Although this isn’t the full episode, you still get 40 minutes of excellent storytelling.
