Time management can be an intuitive practice, based in daily observation and tweaks. Too many of us feel guilty or stressed about how we relate to time, when paying attention to how we talk and think about it is the only form of time management that works.

The author is Julia Scatliff O’Grady, the author of Good Busy: Productivity, Procrastination, and the Endless Pursuit of Balance, RCWMS, 2012 and a visiting assistant professor at St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, NC.  The fact that O’Grady’s blog is about time is no fluke.  Several of her relatives were assembly line workers at the Elgin Watch Factory in Illinois.

While most people think time is about time management, O’Grady believes it is about building a better relationship with time. How we think and talk about time influences how we relate to it.

    This author is insightful in the most significant sense of the word. She finds a wonderful combination of lightness and significance, indicating a deep personal understanding of the magic of words. I am enjoying reading her ruminations, and they have added a wonderful element to my day.
