Why Energy Management is Often More Important Than Time Management

What’s the secret to getting as much done as possible?

For many of us, the answer seems like it should have to do with time management. If only you could squeeze a little more time out of your day, then you could probably find more space in your schedule to do all those other exciting things you want to do.

Right?

The most extreme example of this is something called ‘polyphasic sleeping’. Here, people who want to absolutely optimize the amount they can get done will actually stop sleeping for 8 hours a night. Instead, they aim to sleep for under an hour a time throughout the day. In doing so, they are then able to spend less total time sleeping and get more time to themselves during the evening. The only problem? They’re exhausted.

And this really is the problem with most attempts at time management.
