156: Liberating your Time

In this episode, we're tackling a topic that resonates with many of us: liberating our time. Time management is a constant challenge for school leaders, who often struggle to focus on what truly matters amidst a sea of urgent tasks and responsibilities.

In previous episodes, I've explored ways to reduce the impact of activities like email and the importance of delegation.

Today, I take a step further and examine a time sink that extends beyond the workplace: our media consumption. From social media to streaming services, these media companies are vying for our attention and profiting from it.

But what does this mean for our productivity and wellbeing? Join me as I discuss the attention economy, the addictive nature of media, and the impact on our cognitive abilities and mental state.

Key Lessons from the Episode:

  • It's easy to default to long periods of time consuming media because the platforms are build to profit from our attention.

  • Setting boundaries around media consumption promotes a healthier work-life balance.

  • Mindful media consumption allows for intentional learning and skill development.

  • Being proactive in managing media consumption leads to increased productivity and focus.
