Here’s how I save time.
I think of a single hour as twelve hours. So when I get lazy as a hippo, I am like you just lost few hours, do you want to keep wasting more?
The thing is that you have to put a value of some sort on this thing, otherwise you wouldn’t know how much precious it is.
It’s invisible but at the same time, your time will determine everything. So value it somehow.
The concept of a single hour to twelve hours hit me when I was watching The Intersteller (amazing movie by the way), when in the movie, they reach that other place and this guy is like, hurry!!! One hour here is twelve hours back home!
And I thought, what if I do this everyday?
