Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

What do you own?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We lose control of time when we let others’ priorities overcome our own. Sometimes, it is necessary, but not always. The best way to control your time is to master your attention.

You don’t own time, but you own your attention.

Don’t let others own it for you with swipes, pings and urgent reply demands. If your mind is clear about what you deeply value, every task, request and urgency don’t master your attention.

Mastering your attention implies learning when to say yes, and when to say no.

In time, you’ll also learn how to do it wisely.
