Time is NOT a renewable resource – you cannot get time back. We live in a time pressured world where it is common to have multiple overlapping commitments that all require immediate attention now. Urgency is no long reserved for special occasions, they are an everyday occurrence. Missing deadlines is not the path to advancement or even good job reviews.
