My technique is to ask myself, at the end of the day, if I have completed at least one task. It doesn't matter how big or how big it is. My answer is rarely “no”. Upstream, of course, my permanent ambition is to achieve this objective. I've seen too many co-workers slowly crumble from feeling like they're never getting anything done. Completing at least one task a day, big or small, maintains a sense of control—a basic psychological need—over one's life. Wasting time is having no control.

That's a very vague question...I'm obsessed with time, so everything I do is to manage it better. The trick is that you first have to realize that you can't manage time.. time is moving, flowing, constantly, whether you like it or not. We can manage our tasks, our responsibilities, our appointments, our occupations... Two notions help me to manage my productivity and my balance in an optimal way: Plan my days Every morning, I make a list of the things I want to accomplish today, I call them "intentions" (it's less scary than a task and then it reflects more commitment than workload). This list doesn't come out of nowhere, I'm going to dig into a sort of "mega list" in which new things to do, to achieve, to discover are constantly piling up on a daily basis. So from this mega list, I'm going to pick what can be done today, either because the deadline requires it, or because it's the right day to do it, or sometimes just because I have wanted to do this today. FYI, I do this exercise twice every morning, first at home for my personal life and once in the office for my work responsibilities. I prioritize my tasks with this good old Eisenhower matrix (urgent? important?) and therefore I necessarily attack with important emergencies, to leave more and more time and space for things that are important and not urgent. If I haven't emptied my daily list at the end of the day, some tasks will switch to the next day, or else (if they switch too often), I reduce them, even more, to be able to start somewhere (example: if I have the task “fix the fridge lamp” and I drag it 4 days in a row without doing it, I replace it with “put a screwdriver next to the fridge”)2. Make an appointment with me For things that are important, I lock specific time slots during the week that I don't touch. I call it “making an appointment with myself”. In other words, if I say that Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. I have an appointment with myself to learn the guitar, no one will prevent me from learning the guitar at that time. If they offer me something else, I'll say "sorry, I already have a booked appointment". This allows you to keep in view what is essential. You can make an appointment with yourself to play with your children, relax, continue to train yourself, slowly progress on your micro-enterprise project... etc. Contrary to what one might think, this system is not rigid, on the contrary, it adds flexibility because it reduces stress and anxiety. When you know what you have to do and when you feel freer to do everything else elsewhere, you feel less guilty about having fun and you realize little by little that you have more and more time to yourself.

No, because time is movement. No matter where you are, the universe will continue its and these movements, movement that creates time. However, the fact that you move away from space-time, in particular, takes the time away from that space-time. You will age us more in this space-time. The 24 hours will no longer exist, nor the weeks, nor the months, nor even the years. But you still continue to age. With another time frame. There are places where time seems to have stopped so much that it is slow and almost unmeasurable, but time still flows. We will not talk about black holes because their interiors are only made up of theories, without proof. Thank you for taking the time to read me. Have a lovely day everybody.

Hello, Three-dimensional space exists. We perceive it and we can easily measure it (height, width, length). At least, for everything that does not fall within the scope of the infinitely small. For example, the length of a diameter remains approximate due to the number Pi whose number of decimal places is infinite. But in our macro-world, we ignore this aspect. On the other hand, time is only a concept created by man to be located in a variable space. If the Universe, galaxies, stars, planets, satellites, molecules, atoms, electrons... were fixed, the concept of time would not exist. So, since we are not in this case, we have designed this concept to help us understand our environment. This made it possible to choose the moment when it was necessary to sow then it allowed us, thanks to mathematics, to create other concepts such as speed, acceleration, inertial mass, energy, power... Finally all our physics (classical, relativistic, and quantum). A well-oiled set. If you ask the fatal question "what is time?" to the most eminent of physicists, he will have the honesty to answer you that he knows nothing about it but that he uses it. So everyone uses it at their convenience, and it works. But sometimes, this can lead us to propose theories based on artifacts (such as dark matter or the position of pioneer probes), or even to attribute non-existent properties (such as the superposition of particles).

Antoine Lavoisier said nothing is lost, nothing is created, but everything is a question of transformation. What I lost in time I gained in rest. If you think you've wasted time with a girl, don't tell yourself that you've been practicing trying to find the right one. If you haven't caught anything on a fishing day, tell yourself that you started meditating without knowing it. You have been plowing your garden and sowing, but nothing good has come of it, tell yourself that you have been exercising, and it is good for your health. You have repaired your car, and it still does not work better, tell yourself that you have learned that you are not a good mechanic. You cook yourself and you find that it has a bitter taste, tell yourself that it could have been worse... You have managed to read all this, tell yourself that you have not wasted your time, and you have learned something new, to tell your friends.

Hello!When you know what you are doing: The smartphone and all its applications. The computer is equipped with the internet. But when you don't know what you're doing, these two technological advances can save you considerable time by helping you find solutions: forums, digital libraries, question sites, etc.Take care of your self!!

Hello everyone, As I have not yet received an answer but there are people who follow and I imagine wish to have an answer on this subject, I will embark on the exercise to find out if some wish to share on this subject. Since I think I use some of them in my daily life but precisely, I would like to know more and share it with anyone. In reality, my question may just be poorly structured to be clearly understood. Some examples of Life Hacking concerning me: I try as much as possible to do two things at the same time which solicit two different parts of my brain: a motor / a cognitive: When I cook, I listen to a podcast. (A mechanical task and a cognitive task) It could be a podcast to teach me a new language, property management, organize myself on a daily basis, etc. When I go for a run, I listen to a podcast (a motor task and a cognitive task) with the wish also to learn something. Listen to "new school" or even "new frontier" for the organization of my next projects or new trips. When I cook, I prepare at least several meals and if possible I put all the ingredients that I consider necessary for well-being in the same dish. And I'm happy with just one dish. When I know I'm going to travel, I try to organize myself to prepare for work that I can do offline. I download the essentials, reading pages, documentation that I can then use. When I read, I do it while walking. Yes, it could be dangerous, but over time the body and mind adapt. Combination of a motor task and a cognitive task in order to be on the move as much as possible throughout the day.Rather than going to school to learn a language, I prefer to travel to a country for several months and put myself in a learning condition. Generally, in contact with children, it is the best exercise and they have the time, the pleasure and the interest to transmit this knowledge. When I watch a video on Youtube or play different games on my phone, I take the opportunity to do some knitting or stretching exercises. And I notice especially that in these moments I focus much less on the effort and the pain that follows. Usually, I last at least 15 seconds, 20 seconds more. And after several days, weeks, it makes a small difference.These are just small examples but I'm sure all of us have them and we may not even realize it.

time devoted to others, From a young age, already in school, I spent a lot of time helping my friends to better learn Arabic grammar, French conjugation, and mathematics, In high school it was something else, I became the girls' confidant, their guide to their homes so that they didn't get hit on, and the one they could trust for their little stories with their friends, and for the boys, I was the one with the most stories to tell, I read a lot and they thought it was extraordinary, At university, it was the passage to the big works, helping the nonchalant and the cheaters in the baccalaureate who discovered the harsh reality of the emptiness they had in their heads, their upgrading was a matter of martyrdom, and then there had the stories of hashish, alcohol, suicides, illnesses and early deaths, and fake love stories, Afterward, it was long years of unemployment, it was necessary to reconcile, to assist, to help to make good CVs, to look for the good offers, to manage the long laments on the bad luck, and the depressions, m, and once hired, we had to manage the groups, coach them, organize them, and above all listen to them, But was it really a waste of time? Of course, no, The things I've learned from others are priceless, and the comfort I've felt each time I've been able to solve a problem or provide even moral support has made I am a happy person apart from the precariousness that has dominated my surroundings for decades.

In my opinion, there is no one universal answer since we are all different with different expectations. My answer will therefore be very personal. To attract me, a man must be polite to everyone, respectful, calm, and attentive. These are for me the first signs of a stable, humble, and intelligent person. A good intellectual connection is also important to me, so the conversation must be balanced and enriching. Shyness is welcome because it has its charm. As for the physical, it is very subjective but a beautiful smile accompanied by a sparkling look always prevails. To sum up, a pleasant, positive man who puts you at ease and with whom you want to create links will necessarily be attractive. On the other hand, noisy men, who impose themselves in a not very subtle way, "bang their fists on the table" (as I could read on Quora), "big mouths", those who do not stop to complain, who denigrate, make me run away quickly and far. They give me the impression of people who seek to control and dominate their partners. Finally, the worst seduction technique is the “negging”: belittling a woman in the hope of seducing her (Negging - Wikipedia). Some have already tried their hand at me, I just felt like I was suffocating and wasting my time, it was absolutely ridiculous and they ended up just pointing their finger at their own insecurities. It's not so difficult to have attractive behavior, you just have to be friendly and good about yourself.

The greatest strength and the greatest weakness of humans are to be a social animal that makes most of its decisions by mimicry. So it's quite easy to manipulate a person's decisions by giving them a sense of conformity. A few years ago, there was a disabled homeless man waiting outside a store where I regularly shopped. Sometimes I pay for my purchases in cash and since I don't like having a change in my pockets (I find it cumbersome), I gave my change to the homeless when I left. I'm not really altruistic so I never do things out of charity but somehow he was doing me a favor by getting rid of my bulky change, so it was a form of retribution for service rendered. What is interesting is that almost systematically, one of the people who went out behind me, reproduced the same behavior by giving their change, and sometimes I observed a sort of chain reaction where 4 to 5 people gave their change successively in an almost mechanical. Similar experiments were conducted in New York as part of a study in behavioral psychology. It seems to me that Robert Cialdini talks about it in Influence and Manipulation. Here is the conclusion of these experiments: in a social environment, humans make most of their decisions by reproducing the behavior of their fellow human beings. When we are around other individuals, we tend to observe them unconsciously and imitate their behaviors.I recently watched a report on Starbucks, and one of the company's marketers was explaining why the company allows customers to stay as long as they want in their cafes. One of the reasons is that the customer who stays inside the café for hours behind his MacBook Pro is part of the decor and therefore of the image that the brand wants to give to passers-by. Someone who passes by a Starbucks will often choose to stop there because they will see people who look like them inside. Unconsciously, he will decide to go for a coffee by identification with the people who are inside and by mimicry. Humans tend to imitate the behaviors of those who are like them.
