Paul Graham of YCombinator has written a new article, Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule, which seems like one of those things which is obvious when it is explicitly pointed out, but until you start to think of things in those terms, are far from obvious.
"The manager's schedule is for bosses. It's embodied in the traditional appointment book, with each day cut into one hour intervals. You can block off several hours for a single task if you need to, but by default you change what you're doing every hour.... But there's another way of using time that's common among people who make things, like programmers and writers. They generally prefer to use time in units of half a day at least. You can't write or program well in units of an hour. That's barely enough time to get started.
"Each type of schedule works fine by itself. Problems arise when they meet"
