Time: why do we feel like we never have enough of it?

Our first episode of Is This Working, the podcast that questions the impact of work on lives, is on time and how many of us feel like it’s our biggest enemy. 

Tiffany shares how she found herself lying on her sofa one morning, speeding up YouTube videos on productivity hacks because she felt like she didn’t have enough time to get everything done.

We get philosophical, unpicking where the mindset that time is in scarcity comes from and how that impacts our feelings of productivity and achievement.

We also share our tips on how to manage our time better and how to think smarter about how we’re using it.
