Time management can be a tough job. What is important and what is urgent are often times two totally different things. This same principle is actually true for your health. Where the important issues are almost not that urgent but the urgent issues normally get ignored. For instance not going to the gym isn’t an urgent task but it is important in the long run. Now the question is, is there anything you can do in 24 hours, how do we actually use these hours more effectively? Here are 3 tips that can help you be more productive throughout the day:

  • Eliminate half-work done

In this era of constant distraction, it is really a stupid decision to work on several things at the same time. Usually, we juggle between emails and text messages and to-do lists, trying to get things done. But we don’t get the most out of anything. In our age of constant distraction, it’s stupidly easy to split our attention between what we should be doing and what society bombards us with. Usually, we’re balancing the needs of messages, emails, and to–do lists at the same time that we are trying to get something accomplished. It’s rare that we are fully engaged in the task at hand.

  • Do the most important things first

Disorder and chaos tend to increase as your day goes by. At the same time, the decision you take in the spur of the moment decides your tomorrow. Maybe the decision you take today will forecast your coming life for 5 years. If you really think something is important then do the important things first and get them over with. Don’t wait and risk getting distracted. Take out the to-do list and do the most difficult and important things first thing in the morning. This will not only reduce stress levels, it will also motivate you to achieve more things in less time. 3) Reduce the scope but be Flexible with the approach When it comes to day to day, work it is important to know where you are going. As I have said before make your to-do list first thing in the morning. Do the most difficult task first and move on to the next one. Keep in mind that you need to achieve all the tasks on the list but what you can do is to change your approach. If something is taking more time than usual, you need to change your approach and see how it can be done. Allowing for flexibility and fluidity in your day, to find your most efficient rhythm will really help get things done. To conclude it all There are thousands of time management apps and productivity gadgets that can help you to work fast and smart. You’ll find more advanced calendars and task list managers to get things done in the most efficient way. But whatever you choose to do, make sure you follow these 3 basic tips that can help you with any time management project. When it comes to a healthy and productive life, I do focus my energy on the above-mentioned things: Eliminate half–work and focus deeply. Do the most important thing first. Reduce the scope but be Flexible with the approach How have you managed your time better and accomplished more at work, at home, or at the gym?

Why Travel Mirrors Life – A Rebuke Of Instagram Perfectionism

You're reading Why Travel Mirrors Life – A Rebuke Of Instagram Perfectionism, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

Backpacking and traveling are predominantly arduous, uncomfortable, and anxiety-inducing. When we see those picture perfect Instagram posts of people traveling the world they represent 1% of the story, willfully glossing over the other 99% (such as the fact that blood, sweat and tears were shed to get to the top of that mountain summit – all in the pursuit of a dopamine hit from the proceeding Instagram likes). The chaos of finding yourself in an alien culture, where you’ve been stripped of all familiarity, is at the time nothing other than a test of survival.

So why then is traveling so rewarding?

Because when we travel we submit ourselves to the accompanying s**t in order to experience those fleeting moments of bliss – the moments that we recall when nostalgically reminiscing about our travels. Nobody arrives home from traveling to share their stories of being ripped off by a local taxi driver or how they got so lost in a place that they started crying.

Life is exactly the same.

What gives our life meaning is our suffering, and what manifests from that suffering. For example when we graduate from university our pride and joy isn’t derived from the fact that we now have a new piece of paper that we did not have beforehand. Instead we celebrate all the hours spent frantically studying late at night, our challenging progress in terms of self-development and maturity, or those lifelong friends we made by placing ourselves in new social environments when we would much rather have stayed at home.

Take parenthood. 99% of being a parent involves doing thankless and repetitive tasks that nobody in their right mind would voluntarily agree to. Yet why is it that parenthood has been proven to be one of the most fulfilling pursuits in life? Because that 1% - seeing your offspring grow up – is so rewarding that the sacrifices which contributed to the end result was worth it.

What should you take from this post?

Embrace life’s difficulties. Don’t feel bad for not feeling happy all the time. Reframe your attitude to all those annoying micro tasks that need to be done on a daily basis because they are ultimately contributing to your desired end goals. Your sense of fulfillment and happiness should be viewed from an overview perspective rather than a fleeting snapshot in the here and now. Nobody wants to go to the bank to fill out endless admin forms, but perhaps that act is bringing you 0.001% closer to the person who are aiming to become.

Every single person on this planet is battling inner demons, in one form or another. Empathy and compassion of this fact will go a long way to contributing to your success and well-being. The next time you see that "i have my life together" post on Instagram, take heart from the reality that what you are seeing is a surface reflection of the proverbial iceberg.

Keep seeking.
