Quoting Richard Koch (‘The 80/20 principle’) again, more on time management.
The name ‘time management’ gives the game away:
- it implies that time can be managed more efficiently,
- that it is a valuable and scarce resource,
- and that we must dance to its tune.
We must be parsimonious with time. Given half a chance, it will escape from us. Time lost, the time management evangelists say, can never be regained.
