How to make the most of the time of day in an easy way?

Today I will give the dialogue of the movie. There is an English word in South India – Rowdy. This is almost unheard of in England and America. This word means – rowdy, hooligan, etc.

Dialogue from that movie, translated into English, reads like this:

To live a hundred years, it will not take a hundred years. Do something in one day, so that people remember you for a hundred years.

Yes, this is the best way to use time. Do something that people remember. Just one job, to be done so well, that people remember it for hundreds of years.

Let’s see how long it takes to do a job well.

  • Steve Jobs, the founder of the Apple company, and creator of the iPhone lived to be only 56 years old.
  • The most famous modern star, Michael Jackson lived only 53 years.
  • Bruce Lee’s name comes to mind when talking about kung fu karate, etc. He died of illness at the age of 32.

History has seen such famous people. Now look at the living people

  • Google founder Larry is 49 years old.
  • Facebook founder Mark is 37 years old
  • QUORA founder Adam is 37 years old

It turns out, the way to make the most of time is to do something, and do it so well, that people will remember you for ages.

Now let’s find out easy ways to find more time in a day!

Most of us struggle to find an extra minute or two in our day for anything. With today’s fast-paced lifestyles, things like spending time with family and resting can often fall by the wayside. But even with a mountain of responsibilities, sneaky time-saving tricks still exist that help you create more time for the things that really matter.

Here are a few simple time-saving tips that you can start practicing today, and thank us for later.

Make some schedules.

Just because you can technically fit it into your schedule doesn’t mean you always should. How many chores your kids are allowed to do after school, how many evenings a week you want to go out, how many committees you’re comfortable joining right now – set a limit before all the initiations and requests flood in.

In a busy life, if things aren’t scheduled, they often don’t happen. So schedule doing nothing as a time to rest and relax. Treat that time like any other planned activity you commit to and stick to it. While kids want to do many after-school activities and it can be challenging to say no, spending quality time with family and keeping calm, healthy parents is just as important as developing athletic and creative skills and hobbies.

Have a plan, and stick to it.

Keep a weekly list of common tasks. Whether it’s admin, cleaning, or chores, (or all three!) having regular weekly allocations for specific tasks will help get them done as well as ensure things never get too busy. For example, mark Monday as banking and laundry day, and Tuesday as filing and grocery shopping day.

Identify your personal “productivity prime time”.

We all have a certain time of our day when we are most efficient. (For most people, that’s between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., but that’s not necessarily the case for you.) Use these hours for the most challenging tasks you have to do that day. If you’re a stay-at-home mom, it could be your child’s nap time or TV time.

Get ready as soon as you wake up.

Make your “to-do” list the night before so that when you wake up the next day, you can get cracking right away. This will encourage productivity and a sense of accomplishment early in the day – which will help keep you motivated.

Reduce Travel Time.

One of the top five common traits shared by the world’s happiest people is that they live close to work As a result, they have more free time to spend on the things that matter to them rather than spending an extra two hours a day sitting in traffic. Whether it’s for school or work or dropping the kids off at their daily activities, take a look at what your daily routine is and see where you can spend less time spent traveling.

While two hours a day, or even 1 hour, may not seem like much, it’s a daily occurrence, and it adds up fast. A two-hour commute a day adds up to ten hours a week and about 43 hours a month. That’s about two full days a month spent commuting—the equivalent of an extra weekend. How happy would you be if you enjoyed one extra weekend every month?

Learn to love the word “No”:

As clichéd as it is, it’s equally true – especially for full-time mothers. Just because people ask you to run errands for them, watch their kids, volunteer, host events, and/or anything and everything else, doesn’t mean you have to say yes! This brings us directly to the tip; “Schedule something”. When your “do nothing” time and your planned activities have maxed out all the space on your calendar, you have no time left to agree to anything else.

That’s not to say it’s never going to be an option, but you should wait until there’s time in your schedule for it. This will help you manage any potential feelings of guilt, while again avoiding falling into the “over-committed” trap.

 Bonuses:

As I write on Islamic subjects, I have little acquaintance with some. They will be a bit disappointed. Because, in this article, only media-related people are mentioned. For those readers……

Bukhari Hadith Collection Complete Book, Write All Volumes. How to write? Write down each line carefully. See how long it takes. It will take a few years.

Now imagine, there is no such thing as a Bukhari hadith collection. You will write such a hadith collection yourself. How to write? Collect hadiths from different people. If so, how many years will it take to collect and write so many hadiths? It may take 70-80 years.

Now imagine, the internet, mobile, etc. were not invented. How many years will it take to collect and write so many hadiths? If there are no cars, planes, etc., how many years will it take to order from different places?

Muhammad Bukhari, the author of the Bukhari Hadith Collection, was born in 810. There was nothing at that time. Such an extensive collection, collected and written in that era, should take 700-800 years to complete. Muhammad Bukhari lived for 60 years.

Muhammad Bukhari’s words have to be explained. However, nothing should be implied about the prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) because you all know. What Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did in just 23 years, people like us will not be able to do in a thousand years.

All this is possible – because of Allah’s blessings and mercy. The media persons I mentioned, though non-Muslims have been blessed by Allah. That’s why they can do it. You also pray. Repeatedly pray to Allah for blessings and mercy. By God’s grace, you too can do such a wonderful thing.

Why are some people smart, but others aren’t (brain chemistry-wise)?

Brain speed, if reduced to its physical mechanisms, is how fast an action potential (an impulse of electric charge) travels through and from neuron to neuron.

This is how neurons talk to each other; and neurons need to talk to each other, for example, when your eye needs to tell your brain what it is seeing, and then your brain needs to tell your hands what to do.

It all takes time.

As we know, our brain is based on electricity and chemicals, but the main form of base communication between neurons is indeed these electric impulses.

It is well accepted that the main modulator of the speed of these impulses is what we call a myelin sheath (a kinda fatty, rolled-up blanket around the neuron’s neck). It’s sort of like how your laptop charger cable has a layer of plastic or rubber around it to insulate it.

Neurons are often slender and also benefit from insulation. What actually happens is that the charge, when along a properly insulated neuron, jumps along the neuron faster (the term for this is “saltatory conduction”, where “saltatory” is based on the Latin for “leap” in English).

Neuroscientists often see it via a hose analogy — if you have more layers of protection around a water hose, the water can travel faster without much loss.

The caveat, or complexity, with neurons, is that you need to leave some unprotected spaces just in case you need to use that space as a place to send an initial message to the neuron.

As I see it, the spaces also are the places where the charges subsequently domino and correspond (they’re used as stepping stones to leap across a river, for example).

So myelin sheaths benefit the neuron the thicker and more plentiful they are. Although, there must remain places open at intervals. These open places are called Nodes of Ranvier, a really sexy name. On the whole though, more myelin means more speed.

Now we’ve been talking on the singular neuron level. We must not forget that neurons operate in vast networks of millions. Let’s say you need to get from one end of a city to another. You should just take a straight road plus little a shortcut for the quickest path.

But if you haven’t trained a lot to know about this shortcut, you may meander and take a longer time, make some errors and wrong turns. Similarly, in terms of networks, speed can also be greater affected by how reinforced and trained the network is.

More practice and more data will naturally lead to a greater repository of approaches to choose from, and logically the brain would follow the most energy-efficient one.

 

So, is the brain speed difference between people?

Yes, different by nature marginally and all else environmentally.

On the myelin level, small increases can add up. Some people say you should eat fish, or nuts, or whatever, to increase myelin coating. Only a rigorous scientific study can say for sure.

But on the network level, we can see these differences on greater timescales. Give a child who has been consistently practicing addition and multiplication problems a list of these sorts of problems. Their network for solving these types of problems is optimized.

We will almost surely see that the speed of their completion, on average, would be faster than a child that isn’t dealing with these sorts of situations.

But clearly, on average, this is a matter of training your neural pathways, not anything largely innate. There may be a few genetic differences in the ability for myelination or perhaps the step size for neuron-weight updating, sure; however, we can see that brain speed is highly susceptible to practice in specific domains.

A person who quickly can think of a sentence in English may not be able to read emotions as quickly — it just depends on what they’ve trained in the years and in their recent memory until that moment.

So, people definitely aren’t constitutionally equal in brain speed. Although, we could dispel a notion of intelligence as a static speed constant. Oftentimes, all it takes is practice (sometimes a lot of practice), and the results can be surprising.

One example: learning Chinese was eternally hard for me. Recently, I had less than 2 weeks to learn what most people would spend 30 weeks on during the school year (two levels of Chinese).

I spent most of my waking time training on these words and recognizing subtle differences in the Chinese characters. There were diminishing returns that farther I got (burnout), but my ability to quickly recognize characters generally increased to a level never had before.

Now I’m super amazed with how my brain automatically recognizes characters with greater ease.

I don’t credit myself because I’m just so surprised. We credit the wiring up there in my head (also maybe my parents, my childhood teachers for fostering that?).

I wish I could just communicate the feeling I had to people: that if something seems too impossibly hard, it often won’t after a while. In fact, because it seemed so hard before makes it all the much more rewarding.

Now, we didn’t need a neuroscience degree to feel this, but since we can explain it, we can more confidently generalize it to other parts of life.

Tips for speed differentiation:

  1. Build more myelin and speed increases.
  2. Optimize task pathways through practice and speed increases more significantly.
