Using a clear and effective methodology and stunning graphics to visually guide you - it takes theories off the page through relatable examples and includes practical tips on how to expertly communicate. Dip in and out of lessons as you explore the possibilities of time.
More often than not we describe ourselves as time-pressured, timed-out, and too busy. While managing time has always been an important challenge, technology's rise, the idea of instant connectivity across time-zones, and the age of expectation all hours, has led to the very concept of time being given a make-over. So what do we mean by time - do we own it? Can we control it? Is it something to 'enjoy'?
Starting with how and why we have reached this 'rush-egenic era', 20 lessons guide you through how perception has a massive impact on our sense of time, why responses and language effects our productivity, and, how liberating yourself from time, can in fact mean you use time (and it uses you) in the best way.
Starting with the technical, we travel through individual behaviours and attitudes, before looking at the environmental factors that contribute to our day to day, taking in the elements that work for and against us as we 'chase time', before we take on our habits to challenge how we can be inspired to give more time to our day to day. Lastly, we time travel to a place of liberation and look at how to enjoy time. For if time is man's greatest invention, can we not once again reinvent it to better suit our needs?
