Time management has been a productivity buzzword in the workplace for decades. Since the industrial revolution, people have been trying to find ways to maximize their output and efficiency, by focusing on the clock.
As a successful business owner since 2008, I did everything I could to maximize productivity and encouraged my team to manage their time. I implemented tactics like instilling a 4-day workweek, hoping it would help my team manage their time better. They loved the shorter weeks, but we found that they still felt like they were in a constant state of racing the clock.
