How many days is 800 hours, is a question that many people ask themselves.
The answer is, in some ways, a bit less than 800 hours. It’s not all that long, but it is long. It takes 800 hours to do something like write a book, and it takes a similar amount of time to accomplish something like move a boat or drive a car.
In short, 800 hours is, like a long term average, the amount of time that most people spend doing a given task. There are other factors involved, like the time it takes to complete the task, the amount of effort, how much time is spent, how many things go on simultaneously, and many other things. But for the sake of discussion, let’s say its 800 hours; that’s not that long.
To put it in perspective, the average amount of time that someone spends working a task is just over 900 hours. But the average amount of time that someone works on a task is the result of many variables. The time required to complete the task, the amount of effort required, and the amount of things going on simultaneously are all factors that determine how long a person spends in a given task. The longer a task is, the more work it takes to complete.
But the thing is, that is just a snapshot of how much time a person spends doing something and what the average amount of time is. To be able to keep track of these variables, a person has to remember. The longer it takes a person to remember, the more likely he is to forget. And that is the problem. If a person forgets a task, he has a tendency to do it again.
We all have to remember things. But in order to do so it helps to have reminders. A person has to be aware of what he is doing, to be able to remember and to be able to do so. The problem is that we often forget to remember. So what we really want is a reminder system that will remind us when we forget.
For example, the most annoying thing is not your phone or Facebook friend who can text you about meetings or appointments. But the annoying thing is when you have to type in a reminder and the reminder is not going to be there.
Well, you can go back in time and do something really annoying like, “If I forget that I already went to the gym today, I am going to exercise.” But, the really annoying thing is if you forget to remind yourself that you are going to the gym, you might be dead.
The other thing not to forget is that the brain is a really slow machine. If you don’t get it right the first time, you’re going to have trouble remembering stuff from the previous time it took you a few minutes to remember.
This is why I like these things. You can remind yourself about something and if you dont remember, you can just tell yourself its time to do it again. When things are really annoying, you can just tell yourself, “That was really annoying, but its time to do it again”. This applies to everything in life, so if you want to learn how to play the drums at the recital, don’t forget to remind yourself of that.
