Monochronic time management is the idea that you can only work on one task at a time. This is not practical for most people as they find it difficult to focus on a single task. Polychronic time management, on the other hand, is about being able to multitask and switch between tasks easily. This allows for more productivity and speed in completing tasks. Monochronic time management is most commonly used by traditional office workers who are trying to meet deadlines and deadlines are everything for them. However, polychronic time management has been shown to be beneficial for creative people who have a lot of free-time during their day or week to work on many different projects at once.
