Brigid Schulte was cited and quoted in Cosmopolitan UK about the concept of time confetti:

But, some might question, isn't time confetti just a fancier name for harmless multitasking? And, shouldn't we be making the most of our free time to tick off that ever-growing 'to do' list? It's a feeling that many of us can relate to, especially when we're confronted with the 'hustle culture' that's become commonplace on social media. In fact, a recent study revealed that two thirds of women feel they are not able to do, be or achieve enough.
"The idea that we can or should be productive 24/7 is one of the greatest lies of the modern era," stresses Schulte. "We aren’t machines. We can’t be, nor should we try to be 'productive' 24/7. That will only lead to mindless, endless busyness. Yes, you may be checking a bunch of things off your 'to do' list, but do you even know why you’ve put all of them on your list [in the first place]? Do you really need to? Where does all the busyness and frantic 'productivity' lead to?"
