Spice Girls

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.

Time blocking

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.

When being focused feels challenging

With everything that is happening around us in the world, concentrating can feel impossible.

  • We then resort to multitasking. But multitasking distracts our brains and prevents us from enjoying true focus. The more tasks we try to do at a time, the more cognitive energy we burn.
  • Another problem is overfocusing. Unfocusing - purposefully letting your mind wander - is key to improving focus. The brain works best when we toggle between focus and unfocus.

Too Much Focusing Is Draining. Here's A Better Strategy


The Focused Life at Home

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.

Conquering Every Day with Time Logs

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.

How to Use a Time Log to Conquer Your Day-to-Day


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.

5 Ways Of Tackling Dreaded Tasks
  1. Do it in another location. It may be what you need to shock you into action.
  2. Bribe yourself. Having something to look forward to can make unpleasant tasks more bearable.
  3. Acknowledge your fear of failure. Doing so makes taking the first steps of the task easier.
  4. Commit to doing at least 5 minutes of it. Momentum may drive you to keep working. It's also easier to do things if you know you can bail after a few minutes.
  5. Document your process. It keeps your mind occupied while you complete it and you can use the notes to outsource the task.

We All Are Time Poor

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.
