45. New Thinking on Time Demands
In the middle of writing my new book – Perfect Time-Based Productivity – I had a problem – the model I use for describing time demands wasn’t robust enough to describe the role that time demands play in our lives. I wasn’t panicked – in the back of my mind I knew that one day I’d write “The Book of Time Demands” and have time to explore this single topic in full.
After a few days of struggle, I gave up, and took on exploring the Advanced Model for the first time in my new book.
I think the result was quite a useful one, but I am quite biased. Neither what I now call the Simple Model nor the Advanced Model are concepts I have ever seen described in the books or programs I have seen.
But leave my opinion out of it – you be the judge. Here’s the podcast.
But there’s more… I actually put out in public a draft of the book’s chapter that distinguishes the two models in depth. Bear in mind, I’m trying to describe a psychological object that we treat in an unusual way. Our actions actually transform time demands from one state to another… but that’s enough detail.
