To improve life, start out otherwise handle over time
In his new book – The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Daniel Pink cites a number of psychological, biological and economic research and tells how to choose the right time for certain classes. In his opinion, surgical operations and meetings with investors are best until noon. And if you change the job every 3-5 years, then you will earn much more than you can imagine.
"The choice of time has an incredible impact on what we do and how we do it," says Pink. Below are some important advice as learning how to handle over time and thereby make life easier.
Make everything important in the morning
Our mood and energy directly depend on quite predictable circadian rhythms. They, in turn, determines the chronotype of a person laid at the genetic level.
The mood of the average person falls about seven hours after awakening, that is, from 2 to 4 hours after noon. It is at this time that people are especially health workers – allow the maximum number of errors at work.
"A few months ago, my daughter had to pull the tooth of wisdom," Pink says. – I told her: "You will go to the reception to the doctor very first" ".
Drink coffee and shoot
It has long been proven that it is always useful to take. Closing your eyes for 10-20 minutes, you can exacerbate mental abilities, not risking in drowsiness. But if before it is also a cup of coffee, the effect of short sleep will increase significantly. After all, caffeine begins to act just about 25 minutes after entering the body.
According to Pink, short sleep breaks should be an integral part of the working day. Researchers of the Colombian University found out that the judges endure more indulgent sentences, if it takes. The Centers for the Control and Prevention of US Diseases assure that children, vacationers in the afternoon longer, get higher estimates.
Do not come back forward
If you compete with a big group of people, then wait for the end before you demonstrate your skills. Scientists investigated vocal contests like American Idol in eight countries and learned that singers who go to the scene later, more often get high points. In particular, at the last participant at 10-15% a higher chance to go through the next stage of the contest.

Researchers believe that the judges have overestimated requirements, but during the competition, their presentation becomes less idealistic. The only exception is the ballot. Votes most often choose the first name in the list, regardless of whether it is about the country’s president or local deputy.
Put intermediate tasks
Intermediate stages in work, sports workouts and in general in life can be both discouraged and inspired. Researchers at the University of California in Los Angeles found that people working in the team in most cases do not make almost nothing until half the deadline remains half the time. Only after that they begin to plow.
To avoid this, put intermediate goals and perform them by chain. Choose one task and every day while she is engaged, draw a cross in the calendar. The strip of kresses will prompt you to achieve the goal.
Do things together with other people
Joint activity, whether rowing, running or participating in flashms, reduces tension and causes the mind and body to work more efficiently. It was found that singing in the group improves self-esteem and softens depression. Choral singing can lift the pain threshold and strengthen the immune responses when dealing with cancer.
It works at the physiological level. Hearts of people in the choir even fight synchronously.
