Productivity Isn’t About Time Management. It’s About Attention Management. – The New York Times

We live in a culture obsessed with personal productivity.
Time management is not a solution — it’s actually part of the problem.
There are a limited number of hours in the day, and focusing on time management just makes us more aware of how many of those hours we waste.
A better option is attention management: Prioritize the people and projects that matter, and it won’t matter how long anything takes.
Often our productivity struggles are caused not by a lack of efficiency, but a lack of motivation.

If you’re trying to be more productive, don’t analyze how you spend your time. Pay attention to what consumes your attention.
