Time is Like a Magnet to Us

I believe as human beings, we have focused more on lost time than on time that gives good results, both personal and professional.
Time is like a magnet to us and we often invest in worthless time. In organizations, more resources are used to see/report activities than in rewarding the results.

Why is Time Like a Magnet?

Interesting... Can you elaborate a bit more on what exactly you mean? Your text is a bit concise. What do you mean by your last sentence in particular and how does it relate to your idea?

Using Time as a Magnet

@Jaap de Jonge: I extend a little more regarding how time should be used.
In organizations we should generate a culture to optimize time. This begins with a good planning of working hours that orientates us towards results. Also we should enable automation for those tasks that consume a lot of resources but are really a wasted time.
In conclusion, time is like a magnet which can be used for the better if we focus on obtaining both personal and professional results.
