On Time and Timing

Often time management is not what you think it will be. There seems to be a paradigm of work harder and more. But the most effective paradigm for time management has to do with approaching it in different ways. I was working with a client yesterday who decided to schedule easier work in her mid-week when she was feeling a bit burned out and more challenging work on Monday morning. She decided to do the harder stuff when she was feeling more energetic, and to move through the mid-week lower energy period while creating some momentum by doing work that needed to get done but did not feel so daunting.

Here, an article examining all the research on this kind of topic – WHEN you decide to do a task can make it easier to do and can make you more efficient.
