The tyranny of time

by Hans on 2005/02/09

It’s been a while since my last post. Not really sure why, but I didn’t have anything to “say”.

I find it amazing how I’ve become a slave to time. I’ve been feeling this for a few years now – feeling the pressure to produce, produce, produce. Compared to my supervisor (Alex Jadad) and some of the other members of my committee, I’m in slow motion. Do I trick myself by repeating the mantra “quality over quantity”? Carl Honore’s book, In praise of slow, would seem to suggest that we all need to slow down a bit. But, that assumes that we were at a *fast* pace. Hmm…

Well, I have a manuscript that has been accepted and should be published soon. In addition to my thesis work, here are a few other papers that I’m currently working on:

  • A paper exploring the theories behind adoption of ehealth innovations;
  • A systematic review of ehealth evaluation frameworks; and,
  • A paper examining the elements/definition of conceptual and theoretical frameworks.

I’m also developing a few course outlines/syllabi as part of this teaching course I’m taking (THE500H – Teaching in higher education). I may publish them once the course is over. Also, I’m working on a redesign of my homepage, so hopefully this is a sign that I’m going to be making some more regular posts.

So many things to do, so little time…
