I suffer from the, “less hours in a day syndrome” and thankful that I am not alone. Many people just like me are feeling the same way. I was reading more into this subject of why this happens. I found some easy reads which just talks about, “you don’t manage your time properly.” This could be a case for many people, but maybe not so much for me. I just literrally feel there is less hours in a day to get all my work, task, life done.
Quoting an artcile from their Mind and Body segement, I realized it’s because I multi task alot. I have ten things going on and I want to excel or atleast get some work done towards each. Mulitasking slows you down if you don’t focus on just one of your goals. Exactly, what is happening with me.
A study shows that the American work week has shrinked from 11 hours to 8 hours from 1965 to 2003. This means people back then had literally no time, they just worked day and night. Can you imagine working 11 hours? No family time or time for yourself at all.
Interestingly, the study also, shows leisure time can be both good and bad. If you are enjoying your leisure time and it’s filled with activities that you like, then yes time will fly. However, if you are stuck doing something you are not enjoying then you will perceive it as a waste of time and stuck.
Goal conflict from your real passion is another reason why you feel like you are short of time. This means the goals you set does not align with your passion. Your passion project frees up more time for you, how does that make sense? Well, a passion project is something you are passionate about and hence, time flies whey you are focussed and working completely on that.
Anyways, all I wanted to say through this blog is that I am losing time because, I am multitasking. Please feel free to share if you also feel the same as me?
