Stay productive!

If you have a project with a deadline six months from now, you will probably subdivide all of the tasks required for completion of that project across those six months, even if completion of that project can be achieved in one month. In a way, everyone has a predisposition to stretch a task for the entirety of their available time. However, this can be incredibly unproductive – you’ll be robbing yourself of time to complete other tasks that wouldn’t otherwise be ignored because of that stretching; and 2) a lot of time spent dwelling on the same type of intellectual problems can decrease the quality of your results.

1) When starting your project management or planning, try to ignore your deadline in the beginning. Usually in school assignments, you can have deadlines for the end of the semester, which gives you two to four months to complete your assignment. You should be asking questions such as “how long is reasonable for this project’s completion?” Or “how many tasks should be completed for full completion of this project?”. This should give you a good understanding of the overall effort required to finish the whole project. After this first overview you should already have a timeframe in mind of the amount of hours required to finish your work. This number of hours will probably be quite inferior to the formal deadline of your assignment.

2) step number 2 is dividing your project into specific tasks required for completion. Using paper or a digital calendar (or my favorite, Notion, which has awesome project planning templates) to input all of the tasks and sub tasks in a list format and assign them a duration. Using a spreadsheet can be useful for this task as you can automatically add the duration of all tasks to achieve a final project completion timeframe. For instance, let us assume that the total amount of work required to finish this project is 40 hours. If you divide these 40 hours for 10 working days, you can finish the whole project in under two weeks, if you commit to working on it in a focused state for 4 hours a day. If you can’t commit to four hours a day, you can double that amount and commit to work 2 hours a day for four weeks, during working days. This is roughly a month, which means that suddenly you will be able to finish your project in one month instead of three or four.

3) A good way to hack your way through Parkinson’s Law is faking a deadline of your own. If your boss or professor tells you the project is due January 2020, tell yourself the project is due November 2019. Establish a hard, optimistic boundary in your own schedule and work with your completion timeframe around that optimistic boundary. If you have to push it a few days or a couple of weeks further, do it if you feel like it will be important to increase the overall quality of your project. Be brutal in establishing that fake deadline in your calendar, planner and even in your conversations with colleagues or classmates. Get someone that you respect like a friend or parent to make you accountable for the deadline by informing them that said deadline is essential for the success of your project.

4) After you have this all figured out, it’s time to schedule or calendar block all of these project sessions across the timeframe you just created. And here you have to be really disciplined. Think of your project planning as unmovable as your work or class schedule. Being consistent and increasing your progress regularly and according to your plan is more important than doing a lot of unfocused work during a whole weekend.

5) However, while being disciplined is essential to make sure you comply with your own schedule, it’s also fundamental to be flexible when considering any adaptations you need to make while you are working on your project. While planning the duration of each one of the tasks required to complete your work is important, sometimes it’s hard to predict exactly how long you will take for each one of the steps. In that sense, adapting your schedule meanwhile will be very important to guarantee the quality of your final work and leaving enough buffer time for revision will make sure your project is top notch when you turn it in.


Sorry for the delay 😶

I am extremely sorry I will not be able to post today because of online classes and assignment etc ,but I am not interested in giving excuses or reasons I think should have prioritised my time . I hope you guys con understand, the post will be published on Sunday.

How to improve your morning routine

Being realistic is fundamental. There is no such thing as a perfect morning and you will always find obstacles. Having other people around the house will disturb the perfect flow of morning habits you’ll try to achieve and having a smartphone beeping constantly during those early hours will achieve the same result. The message here is that creating a balanced morning routine isn’t the same as being a morning person, or actually finding a lot of enjoyment and peace in the morning. You should strive for something a little better, or at least more efficiency, and then give yourself a pat on the back for it.

Don’t compare yourself to others. Not everyone is able to start the day off with a smile. You may be going through a hard time. You may be sick, or worried that someone else is sick, or maybe you’ve been through a heartbreaking experience. If you don’t feel joy the moment you wake up, that’s fine. You’ll get through this.

“Planning only prepares you for what you can expect to come ahead” but life will always get in the way. Even if you plan your morning by the minute, there’s almost a one hundred percent guarantee it won’t go exactly like that. The secret here is to learn how to get out of the rut and stay as consistent as is allowed and not as consistent as you want to. Finding at least one or two habits per morning that you need to guarantee that will happen is a way to kickstart your morning. These can change throughout time but will make you feel at least a little bit more accomplished, even if you don’t do anything else. Right now, my two habits that surely happen every morning are exercise and studing. It can be something entirely different for you but what really matters is that you get into a streak of always being able to complete at least one or two habits in your morning routine before you start incorporating more activities.

And of course that the thing that will help you the most in gaining that major motivation boost is trying to make the morning the most creative and ambition-driven part of your day. by finding your passion, you’ll find the fuel you need to be energetic in those early hours. Learning a new skill or a new language, or working on a major project, as practical as it can be, will work as the core of your routine – that passion will justify why you’re waking up so early and all the other small habits will revolve around that major creative outlet as a way to support it. You’ll eat, go on a walk and shower because you want your body to be prepared to engage in a creative or challenging activity; you’ll exercise, clean your house because you want to feel your best and want to prepare the space around you accordingly for that task

You should also remember that planning out your morning routine in your calendar is a good way to make sure that you’re weighing your priorities correctly. Saying “yes” to a new event or a new task to complete is saying no to something else. Piling up things in your schedule because you’re seeking other people’s approval or looking forward to staying busy all the time isn’t a good way to invest your time into a hobby or an activity that actually makes you feel like you’re developing your skills or simply feel joyful. That’s why it’s important to bring at least a little bit of mindfulness to your morning through bullet journaling or morning pages and simply allowing yourself to do other more mundane tasks while being aware of what you’re doing and feeling. Crossing tasks off your to-do list isn’t necessarily a sign of productivity or a successful day – putting mindful thought behind that to-do list and figuring out where it gets you headed is what will help you create a morning that ir worth waking up to.

Value of games

Those who are outstanding players in a game the employer would come forward to offer an employment. Thus, it makes one to take a stride with pride.

First of all is very healthy it will give good stamina and strength this in turn increases the blood circulation in the body and keep your mind active.

Never pull a face even if the opponent team wins the match. Instead, analyse with your team members and coach where it went wrong and correct them only experience makes one a good player . It is said by Vince lombardi world famous football coach had said “it is not whether you get knocked down it is wheather you get up that matters”

Study tips that actually works me

1. Simplifying notes: simplifying notes not only makes them more effective in how they structure relevant information and key points, but the act of using less complex means to write notes boosts your attention in class, allows you to write more and summarize as you go. I’ve been using this method for almost one month and I never had batches of notes as good as these.

2. Making study guides for dummies : a study guide is a life saver before an exam, but a study guide for dummies is even better. These are notes that only you are going to read. Simplifying the language, inserting obvious references and ridiculous examples will improve memory retention and create connections between concepts that otherwise would be too obscure to explain.

3. Simplifying your planning system: having one thousand apps doing the same thing or changing between five different planners will do you more harm than good. Make sure your planning system is only divided into 1) events, 2) tasks and 3)long-term planning and chose the appropriate tools to prevent you from deviating and getting more planning tools than you actually need.

4. Finding a distraction-free environment: a distraction-free environment can mean different things for different people, but the goal here is to avoid the things that prevent you from being in a focused state. For instance, I can be perfectly focused in an environment with no one and no noise but I can’t be focused when there are people around, Find the factors that impact your concentration levels and try to reduce them as much as possible.

5. Going beyond usual study materials and getting involved with the topic: this is one of those study tips that not everyone has the time to do (because sometimes life is just hectic) but if you do have the time for this, I can guarantee it will help you in a way that almost no other study tip will help you. Conducting research on a topic in your own way, creating your own methods for investigating a certain question or concept, finding articles and textbooks outside of the traditional scope will enhance your learning process a lot and create a whole background for the things you’ve learned in the past that you couldn’t get any other way

6. Mock presentations before tests & exams: these can take a huge chunk of your time but they probably replace two or three revisions. Doing a mock presentation on a subject or pretending like you’re explaining a topic out loud to a friend forces you to process information in a completely different way, using less formal words and sentences and most of all, connect the relevant information to convey a message or an idea instead of memorizing for the sake of memorizing.

7. Create reading reports – a so called reading report is basically a summary of the information present in a book, article or other document. It allows you to focus on the most important ideas and arguments outlines by the author and draw a conclusion. For classes that really heavily on reading, this is a great way to create a review and your own interpretation of the lectured information and have everything neatly compiled in a folder.

8. Prepare classes with the expectation of being called: preparing your classes believing your are going to participate is a great way to make sure you’re not forgetting any of the essentials and delve well into the topic that is being lectures. The amount of active preparation throughout the semester ensures that all of that material is consolidated by the end of your term.

9. Start studying for tests and exams two to three weeks in advance: studying one or two days before an exam or an important test was a sure way to have a mediocre grade. I tried as much as possible to organize my study and using a calendar to divide chapters per days or weeks and cover all of the information calmly before my exam arrived.

How to be consistent

Consistency is the only thing that makes your methods stick and do their magic. Without discipline, a foolproof workflow will fail on its tracks. In fact, consistency is more important than your methods because, most of the time, independently of the method you choose to do your work, consistency will be the thing that dictates your success. That is why that after 8 years of studying in school, I have found success while studying only by taking notes, or mindmapping or simply reading the textbook. When looking back I was puzzled to notice that it didn’t seem like there was a perfect study method for me – however I concluded that the only thing there was in common in my success stories was consistency and the thing there was in common in all my failures was a lack of it. I am still struggling to stay consistent but I am atleast making an effort.

Methods are important but secondary. There is high value in mastering different techniques and understanding what’s the type of workflow or learning process that works best for you however, forming a habit out of picking any method will be the detrimental factor in your success. When you experience this, you will notice you can have the same results with different methods; however, most of the times, these good marks will result from a consistent and continued undertaking of those methods.

Consistency, of course, can manifest itself in different forms. It can be seen as a simple habit-tracking formula, where you commit to do a certain activity, like studying, every day. It can also manifest into a deeper involvement with the subject-matter – something particularly important with language learning, for example. Getting involved with the subject in ways outside the scope of your class will boost that consistency. Things like going to conferences, reading articles, talking to people about the subject, writing an independent paper, watch a documentary although you’re not working in the most traditional way, you’re improving your understanding of the subject in a more organic manner, making progress and becoming more consistent

Know that there isn’t a best method, a best technique or a best piece of tech or equipment to dictate your success. There are different ways to reach a certain result and although it’s advisable that you try to adapt to more generally efficient ways to produce good quality work, they are not exclusive. Developing your autonomy and re-adapting to the situation at hand is more important than being stubborn and sticking to the same methods over and over again. In that way, being a mindful student or a mindful worker that understands how they can incorporate a steady workflow into a busy lifestyle is more important than spending hours mindmapping your entire textbook the night before an exam and compromise your understanding of the subject.

3 tips to help you manage time

Time management tends to be hard, independently on where you’re at life – usually it’s hard because in the beginning you know nothing about time management but as soon as you start mastering your habits, your routine changes because some event in your life forced you to lose track of all of your progress. That’s why it’s important to keep evaluating progress on where and how we’re using our time.

Scheduling should be an integral part of your daily routine and should have its own place in your calendar or task list – yup, that means you should be scheduling when to schedule things in your calendar. It’s the meta concept of making time in your day to make time in your day. But as accustomed as you may be to the act of organizing your work accordingly, re-prioritizing is sometimes the most difficult part of your routine because it’s very easy to fall into that loop of doing things the same way, every day.

1) Revisiting the meta concept of scheduling when to schedule, you should save time in your calendar to get organized every single day – make it a ritual to sit down with your planner or other organization tool and just look at the work you’re currently involved in and checking those milestones.

2) Force yourself to make pauses and start thinking of them as productive work too, as long as they’re controlled and fit your schedule accordingly. Once again, the pomodoro technique incorporates this principle seamlessly by forcing you to make short pauses between bursts of 25 minutes of focused work. The trick here is having truly enjoyable breaks instead of scrolling through your phone or other electronic device without purpose.

3) Limit your work day to avoid working long hours and consequently blur the boundary between productive time and regular home routine. Although it will be impossible to fit everything into a strict schedule day after day, having a stricter schedule, at least by principle, and recording that in your calendar or planner will at least allow you to have a daily end-goal, which will motivate you to work harder to meet that deadline.
