The Busy Person’s Lies HOW’S life? Oh, busy. So goes the mindless modern conversation — a constant assertion of the scarcity of time. A December Gallup poll found that 61 percent of working Americans said they did not have enough time to do the things they wanted to do. Some of us feel this more acutely than others: A 2015 Pew Research Center survey found that 9 in 10 working mothers said they felt rushed all or some of the time. In an attempt to understand this frenzy, I spent the past 12 months studying my own time during what might turn out to be the busiest year of my life.

Microsoft, Amsterdam : Sevil Peach The Brief In order to help support their 1,000 staff to work anywhere within their new 10,890m² office development, Microsoft wanted to create a new activity-based work concept. This meant no dedicated desks and no offices for senior employees. Microsoft wanted to encourage social interaction and collaboration whilst actively demonstrating the flexibility of the company’s software within the workplace. The Challenge A Formula to Stop You from Overcommitting Your Time When I dive into time coaching clients’ schedules, I consistently discover that people misdiagnose themselves as having a “productivity” problem when, in fact, their bigger issue is an overcommitment problem. When they have committed to more external projects and personal goals and obligations than they have hours for in the day, they feel the massive weight of time debt. One of my coaching clients suffered from a huge amount of false guilt until he realized he had the unrealistic expectation that he could fit 160 hours of tasks into a 40-hour workweek. Effective time investment begins with accepting the reality that time is a finite resource.

to Host News Conference on Discovery Beyond Our Solar System Humanity’s great leap into the space between the stars has, in a sense, already begun. NASA's Voyager 1 probe broke through the sun’s magnetic bubble to touch the interstellar wind. Voyager 2 isn’t far behind. New Horizons shot past Pluto on its way to encounters with more distant dwarf worlds, the rubble at the solar system’s edge. If You Don't Have Time, It's Because You're Afraid Source: PicJumbo. One of the most common excuses for not improving a habit is arguing, “I don’t have time”. This is a lie.

Joomla! 1.5 Migrate content and users from Joomla! 1.5 to 3.0 via J2XML. Install J2XML for Joomla! How a Themed Schedule Can Help You Stay on Task I’m a writer, a productivity coach and a speaker. Since I work from home, I have work-related activities that may carry over into my home life if I’m not careful. I’m also a stay-at-home parent who has responsibilities during the week that can bleed over into my work life … if I’m not careful. So what keeps me on the right tasks at the right times more often than not? It wasn’t something that happened overnight. It took discipline — discipline that was forged over a period of time in large part because of a framework I put in place that fostered it and allowed it to flourish.

Measure Your Time “You can’t change what you don’t measure.” I’ve read this quote, or something very similar to it, in all kinds of contexts—running, professional, budgeting, eating, etc. This post will look at the statement in the context of time management. In What Would You Do If You Had More Time, I wrote “The first step in optimizing your time is to find out where all your time goes… Keep a time log for at least a week… Success in any endeavor always begins with assessment of where you are right now… Discover your time leaks, your time stealers, to get rid of them.” You can download a printable or a digital (Excel) time log from Laura Vanderkam’s website (author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think). Since I am on the computer most of the day anyway, the Excel version was best for me.

Time Assets vs. Time Debts: A Different Way of Thinking About Productivity Late in his career, Steve Jobs famously drove his car without a license plate. There were all sorts of theories about why Jobs decided to drive without tags. Some people said he didn’t want to be tracked. Transit Illustration of TRAPPIST-1 This illustration shows the seven TRAPPIST-1 planets as they might look as viewed from Earth using a fictional, incredibly powerful telescope. The sizes and relative positions are correctly to scale: This is such a tiny planetary system that its sun, TRAPPIST-1, is not much bigger than our planet Jupiter, and all the planets are very close to the size of Earth. Their orbits all fall well within what, in our solar system, would be the orbital distance of our innermost planet, Mercury. With such small orbits, the TRAPPIST-1 planets complete a “year” in a matter of a few Earth days: 1.5 for the innermost planet, TRAPPIST-1b, and 20 for the outermost, TRAPPIST-1h. This particular arrangement of planets with a double-transit reflect an actual configuration of the system during the 21 days of observations made by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope in late 2016.

3 Time Management Tips That Will Improve Your Health and Productivity Time management can be tough. What is urgent in your life and what is important to your life are often very different things. This is especially true with your health, where the important issues almost never seem urgent even though your life ultimately hangs in the balance. No, going to the gym today isn’t urgent, but it is important for your long–term health.No, you won’t die from stress today, but if you don’t get it figured out soon, you might.No, eating real, unprocessed foods isn’t required for you to stay alive right now, but will reduce your risk of cancer and disease. Is there anything we can do? If we all have 24 hours in a day, how do we actually use them more effectively?

New Page 0 Christopher Alexander is an architect who, since the 1960s, is very well known and controversial. His four-volume The Nature of Order: An Essay on the Art of Building and the Nature of the Universe is his masterwork, some 20 years in preparation (1) As its subtitle indicates, Order goes far beyond architecture. It is so articulate about the process of building and making and the characteristics of meaningful form or structure in any human-made or naturally created thing, that it is well worth the reading time—over 2,000 pages—and money—75 dollars per volume. Order has invaluable things to say about the nature of the universe and its connection with the process of creating. The volumes are illustrated with photographs of heart-piercingly wonderful artifacts, art works, and buildings from many cultures and eras, and equally satisfying photographs of natural phenomena.
