While I originally came up with the name “2Time” as a place-holder, it does have some logic to the strangeness.
At the time, it seemed to make sense to say that there are 2 kinds of time that professionals consume:
- Type 1 is the time spent doing, while
- Type 2 is the time spent planning what one is about to do.
Unfortunately, many professionals are content to spend all of their time in Type 1. They go, go, go, with nary a doubt, until a heart attack cuts them down and they get sent off to an early grave.
People who ask themselves “Why am I doing this?” are those who have begun to escape Type 1 tyranny, and to gain some balance between the two types.
The goal of 2Time is to obtain the best balance between the two types of time according to the specific needs of the user.
Needless to say, there is no perfect balance, save the blend that makes a single professional more productive.
