Why Time Management is Nonsense

One thing people always say to us: "I don't have enough time". Predictably then "Time Management" is always a popular topic. But you can't manage time, you get all you're gonna get. You get the same as everyone else, 24 hours a day. And you can't speed it, up slow it down or pause it.

Don't worry I'm not going to talk about Urgent vs Important.

Time is a funny thing. We all think we've got a handle on time but it is a strange thing.

Take this guy, John Tyler, 10th President of the United States, born in 1790.

John Tyler, 10th President of the United States, born in 1790

In March 2018 he still has 2 living grandchildren. Alive! Today! Grandchildren! Not great grandchildren. When they talk about their grandfather in the war they don't mean World War II or even World War I, they mean the American Civil War!

It doesn't seem possible.

That's why you can't "Manage Time" because we can never really understand it. Manage the things you can change, like your energy or the things you say yes and no to.
