How long is a work day? The length for many people is defined by time. And they leave work at the end of day when clock tells them they can go.
Time is everywhere, not only on the clocks which for many is now an object that not only measures the time, but on smartphones and computers as well; and this could be a bad matter, particularly at work because recent researches show that the organisation of work based on time is a block to creativity and morale.
The reason why we try to manage time in every way is that we know exactly how many of it we have. It’s a scarse resource. Whilst the number of tasks we have to complete not.
And that’s the problem.

The researchers also say another interesting: the companies tend to undervalue and not support the task management in their corporate culture. Smart companies for their part are introducing strategies for task-based planning that will lead them to the long-term results.

In agreement with what Bourree Lam says “Clock-timers organize their day in blocks of minutes or hours”, let’s think about tomato technique, and “Task-timers instead have a list of things they want to achieve.”
The researches on different schools of thought revealed that clock-timers are “more effective but less happy because they feel control over their lives. The task-timers are happier and more creative but less productive.”

Thus time-based task management can help in the creative projects and increase happiness in the workplace.
