Time Management vs. Managing Time

Most of us are so used to living by the calendar and clock, however, do you know that the modern clock wasn’t invented until the sixteenth century? Without clocks, our ancestors experienced time as a series of natural moments. Therefore, we might start questioning, how can our ancestors to manage their time in order to not go pass the deadlines?

I think, think, and re-think. … Our ancestors acknowledged their environment, and by doing so aware of the time of the year and the time of the day.  There was time awareness. I suddenly realized time management is not managing time, it is not about being more efficiently but more effectively. It is about to slow down and focus: do one thing at a time by giving full attention to that one thing.
