Save your time and energy for what counts!
Time management has historically focused on how to get as much done in as little time as possible. But the rapidity and complexity of today’s work environments along with the arrival of always-on communications makes this a potentially self-defeating goal. “Given the pace of work and the level of input in modern society,” writes Elizabeth Grace Saunders, “time management is dead. You can no longer fit everything in — no matter how efficient you become.” Instead of figuring out how to do it all, the new objective for managers and executives may be figuring out how not to do it all. As Peter Bergman writes, “The world will take what it can from us. It’s never been more important to be strategic about what to choose to give it.”
