2019-04-05T10:33:34+00:00

Time management is a lie we need to stop telling ourselves It’s an illusion. It’s not real. Out of all the things we can manage in our life, time isn’t one of them. We can’t start it or stop it, can’t slow it down or speed it up. We can’t store it, manufacture it, or trade it. [...]
