Monotasking by Staffan Nöteberg

The Time Pressure Trap

Use Monotasking to Relieve the Artifice of Time Pressure

Time pressure is shaped within ourselves. People may strongly demand that we immediately spend our time on their tasks. Their demands give us excuses for creating time pressure, but the time pressure is built by ourselves. With monotasking, we don’t need time pressure.




We create timely, practical books and learning resources on classic and cutting-edge topics to help you practice your craft and accelerate your career.
