Life goes by fast. I learn about how to make most of it.

In 1996, Spice Girls, consisting of Victoria Adams, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell, became world-famous with the one-shot video of wannabe, a song initially considered too weird and anarchic.
The girls gave their auditions in 1994, seeing an ad for a girl band in a newspaper. Around 400 prospects were there in the first audition, but the second round only had 10 girls after a month.
The hustle culture uses speed to measure performance. How fast can you ship a new product? How many prospective clients can you call in an hour?
While it may seem counterintuitive, slowing down may lead to clearer thinking and be a faster way to achieve your goals.
It's the practice of planning out every moment of your day in advance and dedicating specific time “blocks” for certain tasks and responsibilities.
When you fill your calendar with the tasks and things you want to do, it’s harder for others to steal your time.
With everything that is happening around us in the world, concentrating can feel impossible.
The goal of the focused life at home is to choose where to spend your time.
Unfortunately, our free time fails to live up to our ideal and instead of spending time on our hobbies, books or familiy moments, we get caught in the low-quality leisure trap - easy and available distractions like phones, television and social media, rather than the pursuits that actually matter.
A time log is a producitivity-inducing tool that helps us keep track of the things we dedicate our time with. It provides a comprehensive overview of how our time is being spent.
Since the goal of the time log is to boost our productivity and efficiency, it does that by showing us how much time we really waste by not keeping track of time.
One of Aesop's fables is about the race between the tortoise and the rabbit.
In life, we have both inside us. One urges you to go fast; the other to go slow, but steady. Sprinting at times is good, but we should not think we can always rely on our speed as we will burn out. We achieve more by making a little progress every day.
Most of us are ‘time poor’ and have deep-rooted habits, priorities and belief patterns that are no longer relevant. We always feel rushed and are in misery as we become less productive, less happy due to our constant running against time.
Time poverty is not just a first-world problem, but the root cause of many lifestyle, health and relationship issues across the world.
