Computer work, time management and health

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

In the last 2 days I wrote about the self abuse while working on the computer. Now... due to the fact that we ( humans ) spend more and more time working with the computers and thus there are few very important points here so I have decided to write few more things about it.

So... time management while working on the computer is extremely important and here are few reasons for it:

1. It is very easy to fall into the trap of pushing the limits because we want to finish another level ( while playing the game ) or we want to finish our task/project as soon as possible. Unfortunately when it comes to working with the computer there is a very common situation that we can spend many hours or even days trying to find one small error which makes the whole project ( program ) not working properly. And even if you find this little error which messes up with the whole project then it may take you another hour or two to fix it. And you are already over your limits but yet you are still pushing because you really want to finish the task today and be done with it. This is based on real facts when it comes to work with the computers but yet so may of us ignore it and we push the limits. Thus knowing about it we should not be trying to work extra time because we really have no guarantee that we will be able to finish the project the same day as we wish.

And this carries series of consequences. First of them is tiredness which also lowers our effectiveness in problem spotting and solving it and the second is accumulative influence on our general health.

So don't get fooled by this trap. Stick to your schedule and maintain the discipline.

To be continued...
