Making Sure We Use Time Effectively

How to make sure that we maximize utility of our time?

YAML Interest

Every day, humanity spends %%>1.37%% mln. years of subjective wakeful time (16 hours x 7.5 bn. people). Given one efficient genius, this amount of personal time may be sufficient to create wonders, to recreate all technologies that we have created in the recent millenia of humanity's evolution. Why we don't have faster progress, converting all those new discoveries from labs to mass production in seconds?

Some people spend that time in useful ways, some not. It is important to analyze how do the most efficient people spend their time, and see how we could adopt the productivity and wisdom patterns they use more broadly, and create scaling infrastructures to make humanity accelerate the progress much more efficiently than today.

Yeah, agree with you here, [chronological]. We should not force people to be productive. If they are productive, it should come from their inner drive. The point is, if we want the wonderful futures promised by the good sci-fi, then finding out resources or hidden resourcefulness is important.


Time doesn't have to be productive. We are not insects. We don't have to work all the time. We need leisure. Most people don't get enough leisure because they're struggling in a capitalist system.

That said our work could be that much more valuable. It doesn't have to make someone rich it just needs to push the envelope.

Don't read random books that people give you, read books that build up a theme.


What is useful for one and everyone?


Television has to change. Programming is currently dumb or for the common denominator. Work takes up the majority of people's waking hours, so working hours have to change also. Perhaps to a four day working week. Then finally people have time and energy to create things.

This cannot be understated. Our time is limited, and unless we learn to make more of time (I mean, literally, working on extending life), we will run out of it. So, a vote for this.
