Capitalism did not create clock time or vice versa, but the scientific and religious division of time into identical units established a useful infrastructure for capitalism to coordinate the exploitation and conversion of bodies, labor and goods into value. Clock time, the British sociologist Barbara Adam has argued, connected time to money. “Time could become commodified, compressed and controlled,” she wrote in her book “Time.” “These economic practices could then be globalized and imposed as the norm the world over.”

Hey, it’s werelivingarts again! My school was shut down yesterday since we’re going back to virtual school :( 😭
Beside other time management method such as Eat the Frog, Getting Things Done or Pomodoro Technique, here is another method that I find extremely useful in my life, which is called Commitment Inventory. I incorporate this technique in many ways to find out and prioritize what tasks are truly important to me.
Stay tuned, more posts are coming soon! ❤️💙💜
