Abstract: This article looks at changes in academic culture and related challenges to time management both to junior and senior academics. Through personal examples and references to popular research, six time management strategies are discussed: working shorter hours; focusing on tasks; sleeping; planning; multitasking; forgiving yourselves if something is not as it should be. These examples come from personal experience of being a young aspiring academic with small kids and challenging expectations from academia, but they hopefully challenge open discussions about time and related expectations in different contexts.
