Time Anxiety and Time Blindness = Balance is the solution for both

As a time management coach, I see many clients struggling with two common issues: Time Anxiety and Time Blindness.

These issues can cause stress and anxiety, and ultimately lead to a lack of productivity and success.


Time Anxiety is the feeling of being overwhelmed by the number of tasks and responsibilities that you need to accomplish within a limited timeframe. It can be a result of having unrealistic expectations of your capacity or not having clear enough priorities. This anxiety can lead to procrastination, which makes the problem even worse.

On the other hand, Time Blindness is the inability to accurately estimate how much time a particular task will take to complete. This often leads to overcommitment and underestimation of workload, causing missed deadlines and a feeling of being constantly behind schedule.

The solution to both of these problems is simple: balance. By finding balance in your life, you can reduce the stress and anxiety that comes with feeling like there’s never enough time in the day. This means taking time for work, personal life, and rest. You need to prioritise and schedule time for each area of your life to reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed.

Significant gains

Achieving balance requires a bit of planning and consistent effort, but it’s worth it. It means setting realistic goals and deadlines, taking breaks, and prioritising self-care. By doing so, you’ll reduce the feeling of time anxiety, avoid procrastination, and prevent burnout.

The impact of finding balance in your life is significant. It can lead to increased productivity, reduced stress and anxiety, improved relationships, and better overall health and well-being. It’s not about working harder but working smarter and more intentionally.
