Agenda Of The Day

Do you prefer a regimental schedule for every day life stuff or do you like to be in the moment and do whatever you want to do?

This is an honest question. I have been thinking quite a bit about this over the weekend.

On the one hand, a time table of sorts gives you a dependable routine which makes a day have more purpose and function. You can prioritize the tasks you need to be doing, in the short term as well as the long term, and then arrange them in order for the day so that you don’t miss out on them due to the hassle of every day life. This requires discipline as well as commitment, two characteristics every body can use. Practice sort of makes you almost perfect. After all, Benjamin Franklin had a daily routine.

On the other hand, being stuck in a regiment, means every day life becomes a mundane life. it takes out the ‘if’ in life and therefore there is no element of surprise. You can mostly anticipate what is going to happen, all day every day. Opening up to living in the moment, makes us more susceptible to random chances which is fundamental for excitement. It brings us infinite possibilities and one of those chance occurrences can lead us to something amazing. Something that would have never occurred to us if we get stuck to a daily routine.

So, there they are. My conceived pros and cons of routine life and being in the moment.

It is a bit odd that it took me two days to come up with those few sentences. But then again, I was asleep for most part of the weekend.

Which one do you guys think is better ? Scheduled Routine Vs Following your mind

Which one do you think is more practicable and, in the long run, beneficial ?

  1. Hi Mr Kanth!
    I have a friend who writes all the stuffs to do for the next day exactly like a timetable in a small notebook and carries it where ever he goes. Once he couldn’t accomplish one of the tasks with in the given time, he just skips it and goes to the next and follows the regime.I did try to follow it, but gave it up in a day or two. But i personally feel writing up something like that will give us a clear picture of the things to be done and possibilities of missing out the tasks is almost next to zero.

    1. hey Ravi.. The notepad idea sounds good. I dont know if can list all things for a day, but for important things I can see its usefulness. I use MS Outlook to schedule work stuff, but haven’t adapted it to real life 🙂
      As always, thanks for the comment.
