you can’t manage time

In a recent LinkedIn discussion, Judith Kohlberg asked group members if there were a better term to use than “time management.”

You can manage activities, priorities, tasks, workload, choices, schedule, effort or motivation; however, as I mention in The Clutter Book: When You Can’t Let Go, you can’t manage time. Everybody gets 24 hours each day; either you use it productively or you don’t, but you can’t get more.

Pat Brans suggested “goal achievement” as a substitute for “time management.”

I think I like that one. What about you?
