For most people, time is a precious commodity that seems to run out quickly, for example, during the week and during the day it seems that you cannot cope with work, exercise, socializing, resting and doing household chores. like cleaning and cooking.

In any case, everyone is supposed to have some free time left, some more than others, of course, and the way in which this time is used is what can differentiate the perception between having had a productive day or a mediocre day, as postulated by this 5-hour rule that Elon Musk and Bill Gates usually apply.

According to the calculations of those who practice this rule, taking away the 8 hours of sleep per day, there are 16 hours of waking per day, but if the hours destined to work are counted, there are approximately 9 free hours left.

However, those 9 hours are spent on daily activities such as bathing, cleaning the home, cooking, and transportation.

Subtracting all of these activities, many people should be left with at leastIt’s a free hour a day, although most spend it to check social networks on their cell phones, which in the long run represents a significant waste of time, At least that’s what technology moguls Elon Musk and Bill Gates have said, who have also said on several occasions that the way time is managed will differentiate those who will be successful in life from those who will not.

Well, it turns out that a way to take advantage of free time and that will favorably affect people’s lives, it is devoting an hour a day from Monday to Friday to learn something new or practice a trade.

By carrying out these activities, apart from making the days more productive, the brain will be exercised, acquiring new skills and abilities. Another famous figure in history who dedicated an hour a day to educate himself, meditate and reflect is Benjamin Franklin.

All this could be very motivating, but if you think about the load of activities that you have to do every day, mental and physical exhaustion could be an impediment, however, here are some tips to start including this habit in your daily life.

Reading has always been considered the fastest and most efficient way to learn something new, however, if you are beginning to include the 5 hour rule, not much will be achieved by trying to read after a tiring day of work, traffic and tasks. Unless you are a book lover.

That’s the way it is, It is a good idea to try to start with the facilities that the internet and technology provide, such as podcasts, video tutorials and audio books.Even social networks do not have to be enemies in the mission of becoming productive, because if the algorithm is trained, it will show relevant content.

For example, much has been said that in China people use TikTok to learn and watch content about science and culture, and on this side of the world there are not a few creators dedicated to this type of subject.

Likewise, on the web there are endless interactive courses and quite entertaining educational articles.

On the other hand, the writer Tim Harford has said that to achieve success in some aspect of life, “first of all, let’s seek out and try new activities; second, when we try something new, let’s do it to the extent that failure can be survived; Third, let us reflect and learn from our mistakes as we go along.”

With the above, it is not necessary to find a discipline that is easy and passionate from the beginning, but part of including the 5-hour rule in daily habits is exploration.

For example, someone might have started out learning about web programming, but discovered that they actually love to paint, so they ended up taking art classes on weekends and weekdays learning an hour a day about digital marketing, because they’ve decided for opening his own virtual store of artistic elements, which may be his new occupation in the future.

In fact, This example has been the real case of many people who have managed to carry out businesses and very interesting initiatives, so trying to learn, even for a few minutes a day, could make a difference. Samuel Beckett said, “Try again, fail again, fail better.”
