From smart homes to calendar invites, we’re experiencing an unprecedented era of optimization. With just a few taps of our fingertips, technology has given us the luxury of scheduling appointments, booking reservations, and automating our workflows seamlessly. But rather than creating more space for being present, these advances have also made it easier than ever to fall into the cycle of feeling like we’re never doing enough and never have enough time.

No matter who you are or what you do for a living, learning how to spend your time well is essential. We rely on time to shape our days — and compounded, our lives. It is finite and the most precious, limited thing we have.

But what exactly does it mean to ‘spend your time well?’ To explore this, Harvest and CreativeMornings are joining forces to bring you a deeper reflection on time.

Time Well Spent is an interview series made for anyone who wants to feel more satisfaction and joy from their days. Anyone curious about their relationship with time and the way that it ebbs and flows over the course of a lifetime. We asked four creative leaders who have devoted their careers and lives to solving unique problems — transforming organizations, building movements, developing self-knowledge, and creating pathways — about what they’ve discovered from managing their time throughout the seasons of their personal and professional lives. Each interview is packed with useful tips, resources, and timeless wisdom so that you can have more clarity and insight into spending your time well.

Here’s what we’ve learned: Spending time well isn’t simply about structuring each moment with rigid parameters. It’s about reminding ourselves about what really matters each day and letting the other details fall into place. It’s about practicing how to spend our days in a way we’re proud of and in a way that we won't regret.

Through this unique series, we hope you’ll use these reflections to undertake your own mindful analysis of what time well spent means to you and, in turn, commit to dedicating your time to the things that matter most. This is your permission slip to seize the day.
