5 productivity tips to help improve my executive function
Have you ever actually thought what time is it? To be honest, I find it very strange that we all organize our lives around this man-made abstract concept that doesn’t really exist.
Days and nights I can wrap: The sun rises – day; the sun sets, night. simply. Seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather, temperature, etc. — that’s understandable.
But seconds, minutes and hours? No, I can’t calculate. Time just doesn’t make sense to me. As a result, I have absolutely no idea how long it will take.
Whether it’s when I have a doctor’s appointment or how much time I need to set aside to prepare a prescription, I misjudge how many minutes or hours I need to complete tasks each day.
This means that I’m constantly late for scheduled events (no matter how important they are), I rarely eat lunch at a reasonable hour, and I often have to extend work tasks because my brain just couldn’t figure out how long it would actually take.
