The Theory of Everything – Stephen Hawking

The Theory of Everything – Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking is more than just a theoretical physicist with an Oscar winning movie out about him. He has contributed not only to the world of science, but also to those looking to learn a little more about life. Maybe you’ll relate. Some of his thoughts has an effect of keep us thinking. Some of them are given below:

“I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.”

Hawking reminds us to stay as curious as we once were as children. He shows us how to be courageous. Not everything is impossible, and through the impossibility, we can discover answers just by asking questions. Sometimes we might not get the answer we want, or an answer at all, but that shouldn’t hold us back us from questioning everything. Life itself is one big question mark, and we’ll never truly stop asking others and ourselves for the answers.

“If I had to choose a superhero to be, I would pick Superman. He’s everything that I’m not.”

Hawking, though brilliant and successful, still has dreams like everyone else. His longing to do things he might never be able to do shows how he’s just like the rest of us. We’re all human at the end of the day, and as humans, we can only do so much that our minds and bodies will let us. Hawking might not have the super strength or the ability to fly like Superman (he suffers from ALS and is bound to a wheelchair), but he does have intelligence far greater than any comic book superhero. Hawking has conquered countless barriers and continues to impress the world. He serves as a prime example in never giving up. Hawking continues to endure his degenerative disease and even through it all, he is accomplishing so much. Every once in a while you might find yourself trying to give up, but Hawking shows that setting your mind to a goal and going for it is what being human is all about.

“The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.”

As we live day by day, we are in charge of the limitless possibilities. We have the power to do things so great, but these things are only accomplished in the now. We can look to the past, seeing the possibilities that were presented and think of the possibilities to come in the future. Right now, we’re given the great opportunity of life to go out and do something.

“The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy. It brings us together in a peaceful, loving state.”

“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression.” He noted that the act of aggression may have had its advantages in surviving during “caveman days,” but it now poses a threat to humanity. Hawking then elaborated on the importance of empathy. He explained that empathy is ultimately what can counter aggression. The concept of empathy seems simple enough, yet it’s a human quality we sometimes struggle with. Empathy means to have a feeling of understanding and the capability to share another person’s experiences and emotions. I don’t think any one person lacks empathy but I do think that empathy is something that takes practice. And that practice can lead to great and positive change.

Stephen Hawking’s life is an astonishing story of a man who faced enormous odds and went on to become one of the world’s most famous scientist. Hawking has helped us better understand the planet, and at the same time, ourselves.

How to prioritize your tasks

How to prioritize your tasks

Have you ever missed an important deadline? Or forgotten to do something important? If your answer is an ‘yes’ this is a symptom of unpolished time management skills. All you need to do is refine your prioritization skills and start to efficiently evaluate your tasks with a proper to-do list. Sounds easy, right?
Prioritization is to keep the most important tasks at the top, and the least important tasks at the bottom. When you don’t even know where to start, here’s how to identify, evaluate, and prioritize your tasks.

Collect a list of all your tasks. Pull together everything you could possibly consider getting done in a day. Don’t worry about the order, or the number of items up front.

Identify urgent vs. important. The next step is to see if you have any tasks that need immediate attention. We’re talking about work that, if not completed by the end of the day or in the next several hours, will have serious negative consequences.

Assess value. Next, look at your important work and identify what carries the highest value. As a general practice, you want to recognize exactly which types of tasks have top priority over the others. Another way to assess value is to look at how many people are impacted by your work. In general, the more people involved or impacted, the higher the stakes.

Order tasks by estimated effort. If you have tasks that seem to tie for priority standing, check their estimates, and start on whichever one you think will take the most effort to complete. Productivity experts suggest the tactic of starting the lengthier task first. But, if you feel like you can’t focus on your meatier projects before you finish up the shorter task, then go with your gut and do that. It can be motivating to check a small task off the list before diving into deeper waters.

Be flexible and adaptable. Uncertainty and change is a given. Know that your priorities will change, and often when you least expect them to. But here’s the trick you also want to stay focused on the tasks you’re committed to completing.

Know when to cut. You probably can’t get to everything on your list. After you prioritize your tasks and look at your estimates, cut the remaining tasks from your list, and focus on the priorities that you know you must and can complete for the day.

Prioritization enables us to maintain clarity on the ultimate goals. We should have clarity on what is expected from us. This enable us to prioritize better.
