“I’m late, I’m very late for a very important date.”

Choi wrote an entertaining informative blog post on time, “3 Surprising Science-Backed Ways to Find More Time Today.” She collected research from Wharton School, Yale School of Management, Harvard Business School, Stanford, University of Minnesota, and The Journal of Consumer Psychology.

Schedule the good stuff. Writing it down and scheduling stuff increases the likelihood we’ll do it. “It’s like smarter past-you has got future-you’s back.”
