Let’s be honest. The quality and quantity of research in time management is paltry. In The Bill Book, both G and Bill knew this fact and had to work around it in order to provide some practical solutions to RingCORE and Syscon. On what evidence did they base their judgment? In the field of time management, there are no conferences, journals or even departments or centers for the rigorous study of time management, a skill that is used by every single working professional in the world. It’s an area of study that has fallen through the cracks which often lie between well-established disciplines. It’s suffered as a result. I wish I could tell you that we have awesome, breakthrough news to share. We don’t. We are trying to to our part to change this situation and invite you to explore the space we have created for academics and researchers with a serious interest in this topic.
Content for Authors
Do you create fresh content in the area of time-based productivity for a blog, podcast, book, ezine, video, infographic, social media or any other channel? If you’d like a source of fresh ideas from a number of breakthrough thinkers in several fields, click on this link and tap into the hundreds of research papers I have read, and the ideas they contain. Click here for more information on how to join our small community.
Over the years I have assembled a list of academic papers that I believe is unique. If there was a better resource, I’d tell you about it! This “library” is just a list of cover pages / abstracts that you can use to find the best time management research that I have read and can heartily recommend. Click on the link – the library sits over at 2Time Labs and I am always adding to it. Help me by making recommendations and sending me your own papers.

Deep Discussion for Fans of Time Management 2.0
Every six months, 2Time Labs takes applications for its InnerLab, a group of no more than ten time management fans /groupies. From January to June, or July to December, we explore difficult or challenging questions in time management with a view to delving into deeper issues, finding the latest research and resolving tough dilemmas. If you are interested in joining, send me email via the Contact page, or click on the InnerLab graphic.
Discussion for Academic Researchers
To mark the occasion of the launch of The Bill Book, we opened up a new discussion forum on Linkedin for Academics, Researchers and Innovators. It’s just started, but it might be the best place to discover, discuss and share the progress that’s being made in research in time management. Click here to join this new group.
I have started to put together a graphical representation of the assumptions that are behind the Bill Book and the work we do here at 2Time Labs. Warning: this is a work in progress! If you’d like to work with me to enhance it, be prepared. The research done to write The Bill Book comes from adjacent fields of study, so you will need to be willing to delve into some pretty obscure corners that are invisible to experts in other disciplines. Here are the underlying assumptions and hypotheses behind Bill’s Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure.
I had the pleasure of speaking at the American Society of Training and Development’s International Conference and Exposition (ASTD-ICE) in 2013. Here’s more information: How to Stop Failing at Behavior Change Training: The Case of Time Management.
I am available to conduct custom research that builds on the ideas we explore here at 2Time Labs. Contact me, and let’s start a discussion.
Developers of Time Management Apps
Coming soon – an exclusive community for developers of time management apps, programs, software, hardware – using the principles we use here at 2Time Labs and many others. For early and immediate signup before this group launches, click on this link.
