As managers, we want our people working smarter not harder. Why put in long hours if the yield isn't worth it?

Here's a new recipe for you to consider: time chunking. We all have the same clocks. They roll over every 24 hours. But how we use time, how we see time, how we slice it, is up to us. Instead of looking at the day as a time-fixed schedule, what if we look at it as a recipe that needs assembly?
