Most likely, at some point in your life, you’ve attempted to use a planning system in order to organize and prioritize your schedule. Although despite these efforts, you may still be wondering, “Where does all my time go?”
The reason these methods don’t work is simple. These day planner systems place a disproportionately high amount of importance on clock time as being the greatest determinant for effective time management. The main weakness of this approach is its lack of consideration for the influence that human interactions have. Ultimately, successful time management is not a matter of how much time you have, but rather how you choose to use your time. The solution? Less planning, and more doing.
