rho-ohm Tech Counting…

An Article from S.B Raghav

(Blogger and Chess Enthusiast)

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.

Why so much of a confusion?

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.”

The Time As Another Dimension


Do Silver and Gold mix?

rho-ohm Tech experimenting…

What do I mean by this title? Well,you need to read through the whole blog for that!!

I start with all data I’ve got.

Silver is a chemical element with symbol Ag—- Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au.

Atomic number (Ag)=47—-Atomic number(Au)=79

Silver being more abundant than gold is still less valued to be a precious metal…

It is available in pure form(native silver) and as an alloy with gold..The above mentioned info are all scientific.

Therefore Silver mixes with Gold chemically! Continue reading!!

But what does one really need to understand about Silver and Gold. I mean that they should have relative comparisons to real life!!Since both are valuables one can’t compare them with Rich and Poor…

We need to compare Silver and Gold to a much simpler theme where people can think upon it as a very basic reference..

So here I compare it with Quantity and Quality!!To be more precise:

Quantity=Silver & Quality=Gold.

Yes!! you read it right..

Finding quality tech, food, infrastructure, education and even people are hard nowadays. It’s like buying gold even if we find one! Isn’t it?

Do silver and Gold mix?
Do silver and Gold mix?

India had preserved a large amount of it’s ‘quality’ in the 20th century(of course after our independence). Now we can see the manifold increase in things(quantity) which are not upto their mark(quality)!!

Silver(quantity) being abundant in nature does not provide the required attraction as provided by Gold(quality) due to which it is excluded from wearable jewellery!

It is often said that, “It is better to have a small group of well wishers rather than having a large group of cheap followers”. People in India are only looking to buy a Silver grade item that offers them variety of options without any quality. What we really need to look upon is both ‘Silver & Gold’. This is very rare since you can find them only as an alloy in chemical form that too only at selected places in India. These need to be visualized as Quality and Quantity whose mixture would demand a very high cost!

By spreading that kind of a cultivation to the rest of India , we would me unimaginable at that point of time..

So yes!! Quantity does mix with Quality(as Silver mixes with Gold) but we have a very few existence of that state of matter whose multiplication would produce the best result of our lifetime. This proves that we have quality tech, food, infrastructure and education in small amount.

We even have people who are called “He is one gem of a person” whose actions strongly favour the development of our country. To identify those few among the throng would be a difficult task at first but by finding them it will give us a chance to promote the hybrid cultivation that we are dreaming of!!

To become a successful individual or country as a whole, you need to have Silver and Gold mixed in equal amount. As an individual you gain fame and happiness through your quality and offer variety of things to the needy through your quantity. It may be whatever offerings you do but the hybrid state will make sure that you stay in the game forever..

Great leaders mention that ‘God prefers quality over quantity’, that is because they have achieved many things ordinary people can’t, which is why we(the quantity guys) call them great(the quality guys)!! They lack the idea of hybrid or mixture due to their decade long solitude. Nowadays  people are not judged by the quality of the company he keeps, but it is common to judge sociability of a person with the number of contacts he has on social networking sites.

Me as a blogger, quality of posts is important but I also need to remain in the memory of the readers which is why I need to maintain the quantity of posts as well!!

All these add up to the very existence of (Quantity+Quality) and eventually you readers have completed reading my 691 words.

So thank you guys for reading this blog and I would appreciate if you contribute some valuable things to our Great Nation!!
