Why You’re Failing to Make Sense of Your Life (James Altucher)
⭐Can Setting Your Clock Fast On Purpose Actually Cure Your Lateness? (Andrew Fiouzi)
Our two-cents on Fiouzi’s article:
“My father sets his alarm clock 17-minutes fast and swears that doing so makes him more punctual. I argue with him the fact that knows his clock is 17-minutes fast means that he adjusts his routine to allow for that extra time. What then, is the point of doing extra math? However, I have never tried setting every clock that I look at to be the same number of minutes fast. I feel like that could convince me to plan my schedule around that new time, especially if I were to constantly change the chosen number of minutes.” – Tom W.
