Some days, our to-do lists feel more like trick candles: Huff and puff as we might to get everything done, our daily tasks just seem plain inextinguishable. Other days, two more chores seem to crop up in the time it takes to complete one, like some beastly Greek mythological joke that we’re the unfortunate, overwhelmed butt of.
We’ve all been there. The feeling of having more to do than you have time to do it is a universal phenomenon. And it even has a name: time famine.
