    Question What is meaning of this word.

    I am beginner at English.
    This sentence might have a mistake sentence.
    If there is a mistake sentence, please tell me.
    What is the meaning of red word.
    Red word located the last of below sentences.



    Many difficulties and much stress today come from our thinking that there is not enough time.
    Time itself remains unchanged in the sense that it carries on in the same way as it has for
    millions of years. We need to see that it is circumstances that are different and that our increased workloads put too much pressure upon us. However, most of us try to adjust our attitudes and behaviors to a rapid pace of living and working. The secret lies not in finding smart ways to do more, but in how we manage the relationship between the things we have to do and the time available to do them in.

    Thank you for reading this post.

    Re: What is meaning of this word.

    The last word 'in' should not be there.
    You are talking about two things - work and the time available to do the work.

    Re: What is meaning of this word.

    The last word "in" is absolutely right. You could do without it and still be understood, but then the sentence would be much less natural.

    … how we manage the relationship between the things we have to do and the time available to do them in.

    Another way to phrase this is:
    … how we manage the relationship between the things we have to do and the time available in which to do them.

    So, "in" refers to doing things in the amount of time that's available.
