Can Time Actually Be Managed?

If you are drawn to this question you probably have already given it some thought. You may even have some answers of your own.

can-time-be-managedIn this Special Report I fill in a gap I discovered while writing my book, Perfect Time-Based Productivity. As you may recognize, tackling such a widely accepted term is a big undertaking, given its widespread use by laypersons and academics alike.

However, those who have given it deeper thought appear to agree that the phrase “time management” is a misnomer, because time cannot actually be managed. In this Special Report, we examine the discrepancy.

In its pages, I take you on a journey through a number of disciplines: psychology, philosophy, physics, management, sociology, anthropology plus others. It’s an unusual trip, because there are few phrases that are so widely used, representing a field that is so poorly studied.

I will argue that the lack of definitive scholarship is no accident. When a field turns out to be terribly cross-disciplinary, scholars in traditional academia stay away. There’s no prestige (or tenure track positions) for Lone Rangers who try to spread themselves too thin.

Unfortunately, we all suffer when a field we hold as important isn’t properly studied.

My intention is to lay a foundation upon which others can build. This is just a start, an attempt to pull together the finest thinking I could find, bringing them into a discourse in order to answer a single question.
