Objective Vs Subjective Time

Whereas objective time focuses on the clock and calendar as a measure of time external to individuals, subjective time brings in the internal, personal experience of time.

Time Management

My Fixation on Time Management Almost Broke Me


Manage your expectations about what you can accomplish

Before making a time block, learn how to properly estimate your workload for the day in order for you to be able to successfully accomplish tasks.

Your tasks need to be doable within the span of time that you've assigned for it. To do so, you must prioritize what needs to be done during the day and what can wait for tomorrow.

Try these simple behavior shifts to manage your time and energy better


When tiny tasks become major irritants

We put off small jobs, like a quick email to a colleague or menial paperwork. We keep putting it off. We waste time thinking about how annoying the task is, but it does not go away.

These small tasks take up a considerable amount of space in our minds. But there are simple ways to bring them back to size.

Why we procrastinate on the tiniest of tasks



... is how the brain changes (for better or worse) in response to repeated experience: the things we do often we become stronger at, and what we don't use fades away.

Rewire your brain to beat procrastination


Nothing will ever get done if we wait for things to happen. 

Take the reins in your own hands to start a movement.

The 'enclothed cognition' effect

We know that what we wear affects our mindset. Our work attire helps us into our role.

Researchers found that volunteers performed better on attention-related tasks when they put on a doctor's lab coat. Another 2014 study found that volunteers negotiated more effectively when they wore a black suit compared to those who wore a tracksuit.

I love wearing my pyjamas when I work from home, but could it be affecting my productivity?


When you have countless open loops in your life, you will never be able to relax.

  • Define exactly what you need to do. In blogging, it could be getting a certain traffic volume or sustaining a certain posting rate.
  • Define exactly what you will commit to. There will always be more to do. Close the ends by defining the amount you are willing to commit to.
  • Define exactly the tasks that need to be done. Make a to-do list for each day and week.
  • When you've finished, stop and enjoy your time off.

  1. Don't answer calls from unrecognized phone numbers. Don't waste time knowing the one who called, leave it in the voicemail.
  2. Do not e-mail first thing in the morning or last thing at night to stop you from scrambling your schedule and difficulty of sleep.
  3. Do not agree to meetings or calls with no clear agenda or end time. Ask for it in advance for preparation.
  4. Do not let people ramble. Always get to the point.
  5. Do not check e-mail constantly — “batch” and check at set times only.
  6. Do not over-communicate with low-profit, high-maintenance customers. 
  7. Do not work more to fix overwhelm — prioritize. Know what is urgent and important.
  8. Do not carry a cellphone 24/7 to prevent your personal life interrupted by work.
  9. Do not expect work to fill a void that non-work relationships and activities should.

Facing the productivity dragon

When facing a seemingly untenable set of obligations - as many now have to juggle work responsibilities with closed-school childcare - it's still best to determine the full scope of the challenge.

Write down everything that's demanded of you, even if you can't get to all of it. Then make the best plan you can. The comfort is in the planning, not the achievable outcomes.

Being a productivity junkie

The brain can become addicted to productivity just as it can to other addiction sources, such as drugs, gambling, or shopping.

As with all addictions, the desire for the stimulant continues to increase while withdrawal symptoms include increased anxiety, depression, and fear.
