Manage Your Attention Instead of Your Time 

“I’m too busy!” “I don’t have adequate time!” “If usually there were some-more hours of a day.” It’s uncanny how feeling impressed and bustling frequency coincides with removing a lot done. Maybe a problem isn’t that we don’t have adequate time. It’s that we don’t have adequate attention.

Over during Quartz, Srinivas Rao writes that attention government is unequivocally a pivotal to removing things done. If we conduct your attention, your time government will most some-more simply tumble into place.

Attention government is some-more than not looking during amicable media each 5 minutes—though it’s also that, too. It’s also about environment priorities and focusing your courtesy where it matters. And where it matters is mostly “deep work.”

Rao divides activities into “deep work” and “shallow work.” Both take attention, though they have opposite effects on your state of mind. Paradoxically, low work activities, that need poignant investments of attention, are reduction fatiguing to your clarity of focus, so they don’t tire we out before we can get your work done.

Shallow work, on a other hand, that seems so low-investment—the sorts of lively check-ins like looking during your phone, like how we only stopped essay here to demeanour during Twitter, with a unreasoning command+tab—only begets distraction.


Attention government is about not swelling your courtesy too thin. By focusing it, by squeezing a scope, we combine your mental energies in one place (or during slightest fewer places). And that—not time-management—is what gives we productivity.

As Rao writes, “Productivity is not about a volume of time we spend on something. It’s about a peculiarity of a time we spend on something.” So isn’t this good news? It means we have copiousness of time.
