This video from performer and thinker Ze Frank includes a lot of jellybeans, along with some observations about how we spend time.
At core, the idea is that by quantifying how we spend time, it prompts us to think about our choices regarding time.
Take a guess at how much time you spend each week on the set of 6-10 activities that you do most, and arrange those activities by the amount of time you spend with them.
If you were to take those same activities and rank them in order of how important you think they are, would the two lists match up? Should they?
What would be a clever way to spend more time on what’s important? Would you need to trick yourself in some way?
