Really enjoyed this conversation with @oliverburkeman about time, "time management," the perils of efficiency, etc.

Careful not to get too wrapped up with efficiency. Time is limited and “getting more done” should not come at the cost of your life satisfaction. Excellent episode underscoring the downsides of productivity and time management.
