I Love Routine

I love routine. It enables one to add things, small and big, to one's daily life.

I tend to write things up on a whiteboard or a planner for concrete implementation of a routine. Writing things up or listing pending and future work helps those who have in the past failed to complete tasks however insignificant they might have been due to forgetfulness. Tools, makes humans stand out from the animals. 

Priority matters. Without prioritizing the list of work, most of the times one can get normal results and a few times end up screwing up bad. Prioritizing not only increases efficiency but also makes you result oriented.
One fine morning I wanted to have Omelette for Breakfast and wash some of my dirty pantaloons. Then there was a 0904 train to catch to my workplace. So here the priority was to get to the train than to make a nice crispy Omelette. Working backwards keeping the highest priority task in mind made me accomplish that morning's task. Nobody will ever want you to complete all your tasks. Just the Top 5 :).
Everybody is interested in Top 10, 5 or 3. You know that, don't you?

Parallel processing does make sense not only in Computing world but also in our daily life since our brain is also a computing organ. Our brain can simultaneously work on parallel streams of thought as well as actions. One should take advantage of this gift of God to humans. I do.
I love cooking. There is none other task so satisfying than cooking, yes except extending a helping hand  to the needy (we will discuss on this topic in further Blogs). A skilled and efficient cook knows the criticality of timing and knows that the hungry has no patience. If you are one of the few who don't have the entire evening to make dishes and please others but love cooking will know that kitchen is the best lab for testing the validity of Parallel processing. I make my Omelettes on one of the burners and filter coffee on the other (That is why we have multiple burners ;)). Meanwhile you can wash dishes, while readying your favourite Coffee mug for the coffee and listening to Eminem rap. A perfect implementation of allocation of time slots.

The driving factor of maintaining a routine is that it helps you to remain efficient and valid in this society. But it is advisable to break the shackles of your routine. This is for 2 reasons:
a. When you break away from your routine, you can observe and adopt new elements. It promises to bring new dimensions to the daily life.
b. When you break away from the routine, and then come back, then you realize the importance of it. As they say, "Loved ones are missed when they are gone."

Best wishes!
