Hello friends! With you Max and today I
want to talk to you about time about time, yes, about time management.
In Russian, we say time management. And why did I have such a question?
Why did I come up with such a question? I’ll show you … These are my Chinese textbooks and I’m constantly trying to find time to learn Chinese. But I have …
You know, here, in China, I work, I have a job and i work … well … eight or
nine hours every day. Also, I shoot videos, I record podcasts,
and I have a website. Oh, by the way, about the site … You can go to my site and
freely get a full lesson from my membership program.
Yes, so go to the site, enter your E-mail and you will receive a lesson. Yeah, the site … And
I have a personal life! Hell, yes! I want to go somewhere sometimes: in
cinema, in a restaurant, meet friends, but I have absolutely no time for it, no time. And I started thinking: “why that is happening? “We, we are with you, we live in
the modern world of the 21st century. We have, we have gadgets
we have mobile phones, computers in pocket, in our pocket we
have a computer! Wow! We have different devices that help us, help us
to do things faster. We have computers, anything! But we
constantly feel pressure, yes, pressure from above. We are constantly in
stressful state, yes, stressful. We always run! Look outside, here,
there is a street, look at the street! All people go like this, no one goes like this.
Very few people who walk slowly. Why?
And here’s what i think. First of all, initially, initially time management, it
told us: “if we have the technology to do
things faster, then we will have more time ”
So, I have, I have a phone, i have a phone. If I want to read
a book, if I want to read a book, I don’t need to go to the bookstore I don’t need to waste time I don’t need to buy a book. I need a *imitating computer sounds* – make a couple
touchs of the screen and book is here, fast, wow! Cool! Another example: we can order
food by phone. Hello, yes, yes, yes, please
today noodles with vegetables and coca cola, yes, thanks! Everything is fast, everything is fast! But
it turns out that we do things faster, but number of those cases, number of tasks, it is constantly growing, it is constantly growing and what can we do about it?
ok Stage two! One smart man came up with such a thing, he came up with such stuff: we need to prioritize our things to do! Prioritization, that is, to arrange the priorities. This task is important, this case is important but this is one is urgent and important. I.e
urgency and importance, urgency, importance. And we can
prioritize things, for example, work this is a priority activity. For example,
playing a game on the phone is not priority thing. First – work, then –
a game. Prioritization. But, I think that something is missing here something we
missing out. And I think the main point here is time. We, also, must think
about our time. Like how … what can I do now, today to get more time tomorrow? Or the day after tomorrow? Or in a month?
What can I do now, this is the first moment, the first important point, what I can do now so that I will have more time tomorrow? How can I
automate some affairs, some processes, some work. How can i
automate? ok, automate is cool! Second moment. How can I
delegate some work? How … Who can do this job for me? I can’t
do everything, everything, everything, everything, everything. Sometimes it’s easier to pay money and give some work away for another person and there will be time for more important, more
priority cases. That is, we increase our free time. Free time is
getting bigger, bigger and bigger. And number three, sorry …
Number three is the simplest thing you can only think of!
Number three is “do not do”, do not do, yes, don’t do! For example, you want to learn
Chinese you want to learn Chinese. But, all your day it’s
filled with affairs: work, then, I don’t know dancing, then pick up the child from kindergarten,
or pick up the child from school, then dinner, then watching TV, for example, then
sleep, yes. This is our day. And how can we in this day add Chinese language, or
Russian, or Italian? We need to think not how to add it,
but how to remove something first, how to delete something. How not to do something. And if we remove something, then we will have time. Usually, usually people think like that “Okay,
this is my day, this is my daily routine, my schedule,
and I will include Chinese in my daily routine”. .Ok, for example, when I have breakfast, I can watch the video on Youtube.
When I have lunch, I can do the exercises. But I think this is the wrong approach. Yes you
can, for example, if you go to work, or drive to work by car listen to some
podcasts (podcast of Max, of course;), but … And this is okay,
But doing something constantly … Having breakfast and watching video, having lunch and do
exercises … every minute you’re doing something!! No! It’s important to think about
your emotional state. Being in stress and under the pressure are not very
good ideas, this is not very good. Therefore, to include Russian or
Chinese in your day you need to remove something from this day. I think so, therefore, now I’m trying to do the maximum of those things, the maximum of those cases that in the future
will be able to give me time yes that will give me time. Friends write me if
you have any problems with time management? Do you have time to learn Russian? Do you just have time to walk and enjoy life? Or are you also constantly in such a stream …

Yes, great, I can play … no, no … Chinese first! So, no … or the guitar …?
Damn, what to do?
