Costs and disadvantages of time recording

The realization of tomorrow's dream is built on today's sacrifice.


《奇特的一生》It has been 40 years since it was published in 1979.

Some people may ask, "if the time record is really so good, why is it still not popular?"

Because it looks boring and doesn't work in the short term.

The reasons why I can hold on are:

  1. "seeing" myself changed, I know it works.

  2. Accumulate material for future memoirs.

  3. The inertia of persistence makes me unwilling to give up.

If you are still on the sidelines, I suggest you try it directly. You don't need any software, and it takes time to record it with pen and paper.

No matter how boring you are and how much you want to give up halfway, just tell yourself, "just hold on for a week."

A week later, analyze your time consumption and you will know that you are wrong about your time consumption.

If you want to change, make a list of actions and implement it!

After you think the "time record" action is really useful, transfer to the software.

In addition to being boring and difficult to work in the short term, many students are worried about "wasting time". Although any skill will come in handy one day, when it comes to the cost of time, according to my full-time record, it will take 20 minutes a day.

If you think 20 minutes is a waste, ask yourself, "where's your Ferrari?"

Woman: do you smoke?

Man: smoke.

Woman: how many bags per day?

Man: three packs.

Woman: how much is each pack?

Man: two pounds.

Woman: how long have you been smoking?

Man: 15 years. Woman: so it costs you 2190 pounds a year to smoke over the years.

Man: correct.

Woman: 2190 pounds a year, regardless of currency, you've spent a total of 32850 pounds smoking in the past 15 years, right?

Man: mm-hmm. Woman: do you know? If you don't smoke, put the money in a high-interest savings account at a compound interest rate. You can buy a Ferrari now.

Man: do you smoke?

Woman: no.

Man: what about your Ferrari?

Some students complain that the recording software is not easy to use and want to wait until the software is more perfect before starting. I believe that there will be better recording tools, even automated and insensitive ones, in the future. You can wait until then, but time won't wait for you.

As time goes by, you can never get it back.

Finally, if you stick to the time record, you may often be slap in the face by yourself, which is also a disadvantage. "😂

You will find from the data that all kinds of excuses are no longer valid, such as self-consolation that "I have been too busy to exercise recently". When I analyze the time, I find that there are still more than 2 hours a day, but you use it to browse the show. For example, you comfort yourself by saying, "I'm good. Getting up at 5 o'clock every day is not a problem for me, but I just don't think of it." but when you look at the sleep data, you never get up at 5 o'clock.
