First let me wish you all a happy new year. It’s now 2017 and we are all having a list of New Year resolutions and many goals and dreams which we would like to achieve by the end of this year.
A recent article that interested me was about the about the leap second. It had explained about how Google was planning to alter its Network Time Protocol (NTP) so as to include the extra second on December 31st and how the leap second could just disrupt the functioning of the internet had it not been considered. To say it in simple terms, the leap second was just an extra second added to the clock on December 31st so as to compensate for the revolution of the earth.
The thing that interested me was not the leap second or the Network time protocol or even the effect of the leap second on the internet. It was only about the importance of each second in our life. This made me realize how many precious hours I have wasted till now aimlessly scrolling news-feeds! When a second is just given that much importance in the current scenario, just think about how much your time is valuable.
This explains my new formed view that I wish to convey — “time is a resource”.
It’s a resource used properly by the successful and spent recklessly by those who fail in their endeavors. The most valuable gift given by god is definitely “time”. Once wasted, time can never be earned back. It may be duly called as the most valuable thing in the world. Spend it wisely and it would elevate you to great heights else you perish without achieving anything.
There is a term in economics known as opportunity cost, knowledge of which would help to never waste your time for trivial matters in life. Opportunity cost effectively quantizes the value of your time.
Suppose you are planning to start a restaurant after quitting your job, then the revenue you earn from the restaurant must be greater than the money you could have earned in your job so as to be profitable in this venture. Thus opportunity cost is the money you could have earned working in the time you had spent for something. Hence your time could be compared approximately with money. A person earning Rs.25000 a month would have wasted 100Rs. if he had spent an hour unproductively. This may explain you why I would like to refer time as a resource.
An organization working on a project hires people primarily not for the skills but for their time. So the next time you land a job in your dream company or recruit members for your startup remember that you are hiring them for their time and not their skills. So literally we are paid just for our precious time we give for them, be it in an organization or a business.
Such being the importance of time,and where people are paid for their time, we are remorselessly wasting it in social networking and internet just because we are left with abundance of it.
God doesn’t give you money to survive in this earth, he just gives you time to live. He doesn’t like to pay you in dollars or Euros; he just pays you in seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years. Hence that’s why we have been referring the usage of time as spending.
For those who are poor in managing time let me tell you a simple way to boss over it at your hand. It’s to micromanage time by splitting your it into small chunks and planning what you are going to do in that span. Suppose you have a plan or a task that should be completed in a month, split it into thirty small tasks that should be completed in a day. This makes it easy to monitor the progress and hence be in control over the time in hand. When you have practiced micromanagement of time you would be in a position to decide clearly what you should do in your allocated space. Learning to Micromanage time may be the best thing you could learn that would help you achieve your targets and finish your tasks within stipulated attitude of time.
The similarity between successful people of all fields is that they value triumph and time. You cannot see them wasting both these because they are here only because they have used it properly to become the master in their respective fields. I may quote the words of Steve Jobs which describes how much he valued time. It goes as “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time”. A person who respects time this much is sure to succeed and Steve Jobs is just an example to it.
Finally, those who have till now wasted many hours in life(including me), let’s just assure ourselves that we would manage our time in a better way that helps us attain our targets and am signing off with another quote from Jobs-Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living Someone Else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
–An Article from S.B Raghav
(a well wisher of Rho-ohmTech Community):
Make sure you share this article with your friends and to those who are struggling to get hold of their TIME!!
A link to TIME as another Dimension is down here!!
Are you one of them who really want to get a lot of popularity?
How do you want to portray yourself?
How can you get those millions of fan-followers?
Ahhh!! This keeps popping every now and then and this one such visual crushes all other significant thoughts, which were to be given their first preference. It is those time of solitude when you get these freakin ideas of becoming famous and taking selfies with random people!!
But giving it a 2 or 3 minute thought and having deep introspected for a day or two, you gain that faint happiness that there are probabilities of you trending in your society!!
You know something? I don’t like my blog without some technology quotes! So in that case take a small comparison- What was a Virtual Reality (VR) which came into existence was over-compensated with Augmented Reality(AR)!! Does it make sense? What was just a mere imagination a decade ago, came into strong relation with the humans, after the launch of Google Cardboard, Samsung VR , Oculus that were soon over-powered with Microsoft’s holo lens and recently launched Lenovo AR Headset..
You may probably click the >< button, not willing to read my next couple of statements..
But wait a minute!! There are real-time possibilities for you to trend.Many of them already are and many will be in the near future.
I am not going to tell you the ways of trending in this BLOG, rather would post a serious note about the path in which people should trend.
Choose your LOVE and love your CHOICE, wouldn’t that be the simplest idea for one to follow and accomplish their goals? Similar to maximum disadvantage in case of human cloning (Human cloning is the creation of a genetically identical copy of a human. The term is generally used to refer to artificial human cloning, which is the reproduction of human cells and tissue)- “of course taken from WIKIPEDIA”, there are high risks of one trending in the wrong direction..
You may and you should wonder why I’ve compared human cloning to that of trending in the wrong direction. The very fact that when one starts trending in the wrong side there are many replica of that person produced each and every second.Moreover with the kind of technological advancements, that person would be breathing his last stages of life in terms of Hacking? Ahh Even I’m confused now!. He would have accepted the brighter side, but sometimes you have that curiosity to perform illegal acts that in the long run would eventually lead you to prison-(the ultimate destination for every offender).
Even though that person would be trending , it would always be temporary and he/she will take all curse of the public. What if all these doesn’t happen and you lead a normal life without any popularity? That sounds good but only to some people!
Heyy man I’m sorry to bore you, but yeah the true fact is 75% would like to trend in some good way. This may be temporary or permanent but the kind of response you get would be amazing, especially if you crack a JEE exam and come in top 3 rankings.
This kind of gaining popularity would only last a week or two but you will cherish those moments..
Trending is important but the choice lies with us..
Few quotes about choices would fill up my blog:
“We are entering an era of unprecedented choice. And thats a good thing.”, Chris Anderson
“We are unknowingly predictable in our choices. It can be seen by the way we decorate our houses. We all feel we make unique and distinct choices, yet we all stand by cultural standard.” Aww by me!!
Reading the above title ,you would be thinking as to what does parallel universe mean?
This blog is not the kind, you readers are expecting.
I am not going to explain the technical and science aspects that deal with the above title(Parallel Universe).
As I’m no Scientist or Physicist, this blog would be a kind, what you readers should deeply be thinking..
Consider a Cube, a Cylinder mounted with a Cone and a Solid Gauge tyre separated by means of decreasing Wedge .
Imagine these shapes represent your Mind and Heart.
A mind has only one State Of Matter(SOM)i.e. your brain.
Whereas Heart is one which is bound with both Soul and Blood.
Explaining you in Basic terms I’m actually relating Parallel Universe with one’s mind and heart. It is at the point of time when you take decisions on your own without a prior consultation from your Seniors-your Mind and Heart lives in a parallel world.
For you to be at the state of peace,your mind will have to cross the barrier(Wedge) at the earliest. So it chooses a path where the width of the wedge is least. This means that an existence of parallel universe that eventually combines with ours,results in meeting up of a human’s heart and mind.
Technically speaking a Parallel Universe is considered to be another dimension. This is my root cause for the relation of human’s soul to it. We actually never experience what our soul thinks. It only reminds us as a separate living being until we die.
The reason why I’m literally writing the above theory is to let the readers understand that nowadays people don’t believe in superstitions on life existing after death. After the end of one’s life his soul rests in peace in a different world, to be more accurate in a parallel universe. Well the shapes designed,give us a deep reminder that our Mind and Heart are too solid to change. Hence for a better understanding and a smooth cycle of one’s life there is utmost necessity of combining them to one single platform.
It is indeed in terms of Sci-Fiction described to be a hypothetical alternate universe.
I would like to mention about Edwin. A. Abbott.
He wrote a concept called the flatland.
It describes a world of two dimensions inhabited by living squares, triangles, and circles, called Flatland, as well as Pointland (0 dimensions), Lineland (1 dimension), and Spaceland (three dimensions).
As mentioned in my previous blog about Time being another dimension, add a fourth dimension to space, and there is room for an indefinite number of universes,all alongside of each other.
It is this same fact that we as humans are bound to have many behavioral patterns. In order to cope up with this result we need to have the potential to have a quick cross-over of the wedge even the regions of maximum thickness.
Quote from: Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass
If a coin comes down heads, that means that the possibility of its coming down tails has collapsed. Until that moment the two possibilities were equal.
But on another world, it does come down tails. And when that happens, the two worlds split apart.
I end this up with the readers thinking about the rest of their lives on what actually they need to achieve interms of bringing their mind and heart together.
