Issue 71 - 06 | 168 Hours: The Blank Slate of Time

By Laura Vanderkam
Published June 2, 2010 5:00 p.m.
“It is an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are all starved for time. With the rise of 2-income families, extreme jobs, and the ability to log on to the world around the clock, we can barely find time to breathe.

At least that’s the way the story goes. Yet there are some people who don’t seem to feel this way. Not only do they have full personal and professional lives, they often claim they could fit more in if they wished!

How do these people do so much with their time? How do they do so much and not even feel stressed about it?”
