This study is an exploration of how we construct, understand and organise time and how this is reflected in the tools which we use to manage and record it. It examines the changing relationship between work, time and these tools, and looks at how the emergence of complex, 'high-speed' lifestyles-characterised by multiple interconnected responsibilities and roles-has led to pressure on the individual to be able to switch attention effortlessly between their different roles, for example, as worker, colleague, parent and friend. This study aims to better understand this area by an analysis of complex lifestyles, through a series of interviews with non-traditional workers. It concludes by putting forward suggestions for the design of a tool to support these workers
