Christmas Time Pressure
It's that time of year when we write Christmas cards to say "we don't know where the year has gone" and "we must make time to catch up next year". Do we really have control of how we allocate our time or do we chosse to spend more time on those things we blame for lack of time for other things.
The question of how poeple use time and whether time pressure is real or illusionary was studied in a discussion paper relased by the Social Policy Research Centre in Septmeber 2002. The paper is titled "The Time-Pressure Illusion". From studying the time people spend doing paid or unpaid work, the paper appears to conclude that those who feel most overworked work longer than is necessary and therefore "time-pressure" is a dsicretionary thing and lack of time an illusion.
