Twenty Four Hours of Opportunities

A week provides you with seven days. Also, four weeks make up a month. And we have fifty-two weeks in a calendar year. Anyway, one year has the three hundred and sixty-five days. So, if you dedicate a tiny part of your 'day' to an activity from today onwards; it will become something huge, in one year.

For example, if you say that you will spend thirty minutes each day as 'hobby time'; you get three and a half hours of 'weekly hobby time.'

Therefore, you can have a fourteen hours per month for your hobbies. For the year, you secure a hundred and eighty-two hours for the same purpose. Just imagine how these numbers would skyrocket, if you add more time per day for your hobbies. Not to mention, same principle can be applied to most of the 'meaningful' or 'long-term' processes.

What if, you write ten words a day? Why not try to write more? What will be the final word count after the next fifty-two weeks?

Of course, you don't need to do this linearly, like a robot. So, forget about the daily commitment. And simply focus on the weekends and holidays. In the busy days of a week, additional distractions might not be a good thing for some humans. So, weekly objectives will help relieve the stress of daily checklists.

At the end of the day, if we try to do anything in a tight timeframe; a lot errors pile up.

And even if the weekly aims may not be as productive as the daily to-dos, you still have the fifty-two weeks every year. So, stop trying to do a lot in a single day or a single week. Who knows, by being too 'productive', something else might start decreasing... something which could bring you more satisfaction, from whatever you do daily.

Perhaps, it is neither the work we do, nor the economic limits we face; it's our Approach towards our Work or Craft that's hurting our interest in it.

And you would never understand if it's true or not, unless you pause thinking about the 'productivity' or 'time-limits' only.
