The emotional impact of over-optimisation

Too much optimisation can affect how we see time and impact our emotions.

  • When our schedules are disrupted, it can trigger anxiety and annoyance. But if we see interruptions as time worthy, we may see them as beneficial.
  • Research also shows over-scheduling can make us feel like we have less time. For example, if we have a meeting scheduled at a particular time, the hours before the meeting will feel insufficient, as if time shrinks towards the task.
  • Research suggests feelings of time scarcity reduce our capacity to care about other people.

Discretionary time is the variable that decides how happy one is in their life.
