Quit Managing Your Time... Manage Your Attention
Source: Lee J. Colan and The L Group
No matter what you do, time marches on at its own pace - tick, tick, tick - and there's nothing you can do to change that (unless you can go pretty close to the speed of light). Time is a great equalizer; it runs at the same speed for everybody, rich or poor, jet pilot or snail farmer. You can't manufacture time, you can't reproduce time, and you can't slow time down or turn it around and make it run in the other direction. You can't trade bad hours for good ones, either. What you can manage, however, is your attention. Attention is a resource we all possess. Your attention reflects your conscious decisions about which activities will occupy your time.
