How much time do you have each day? May 30, 2006Posted by Matsu in Management, Random.
This post over at PierG's blog talks about having a fixed amount of time and learning to do more with that limited time. Is time management about managing time, or is it really about managing your activities given a fixed amount of time? Reading it reminded me of a quote I read many years ago. It went something like,
"You have the exact number of hours in a day that Mozart, Gandhi, and Einstein had. So, what are you going to do, today?"
Any time I feel like I simply don't have enough time to do everything that needs to get done, I remember that I am working with the same 'raw time' as everyone before us had, including the greatest artists, politicians, and scientists. That thought reminds me that it's possible to do great things with only 24 hours in a day.
