The Science of Time Management is a lecture based on recent—and counterintuitive—findings in psychological research: motivation, willpower, and continuous effort don’t work in the long term. We all seek to find motivation to get our work done, but the science is clear: it is almost impossible for human beings to consistently find motivation, rely on willpower, and exert effort continuously to get things done and be productive. That is why scientists from Harvard University and other rigorous research institutions have focused on alternatives now known as effortless strategies: techniques that help you be organized, productive, and stress-free with as little effort, motivation, and willpower as possible. This lecture features some of these evidence-based strategies, with practical techniques to help you reduce stress and better handle your personal and professional projects.
