” Be alone, that is the secret of invention; Be alone, that is when ideas are born”.Nikola tesla
“Learn to stay alone. It is not necessary that the person standing next to you will there for your whole life.”A.P.J. ABDUL KALAM
We all listen to it a lot of times that we should learn to stay alone. Many great personalities have repeated this statement in different ways. If you will look at the quotes mentioned above then you will come to know that these two personalities have really changed the world.
Staying alone never means that we should no socialize and not even means that we should go to a jungle a do meditation. It simply means we should work on our “ME TIME”. Managing your ME time is a very simple task. You can learn this skill in a few second.
Now let us know how can we start our me-time. It is a very simple take if you start following the steps as mentioned below.
Step 1. Try to find out time for 1 hour in your day when you have the least disturbance at your home or workplace.
Step 2. Note that time and make sure you spend those time every day with your me-time only. Making it a habit is very important. It will enable you to be more productive.
Step 3. Now it is time to arrange your me-time or schedule it. I would suggest to divide it in a time interval of 15 minutes. In this time you will have to assign a task for every 15 minutes. And then take a break if around 2-3 minutes.
My me time is divided into 6 parts 15 minutes each. First two 15 minutes are used to going for a long walk alone. Next two 15 minutes are used for reading books. And the last two 15 minutes are used for writing or working on my articles or other stuff.
Now let us discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages.
• After spending an hour a day for Me time slowly and steadily your mind will start filling with creative ideas.
• You will feel a craving for me time once you get addicted to it. Which will really help you out to be more creative.
• You will become more relaxed and stress-free once you start spending Me time every day.
• This time will really help you out to focus on important things like your health, your attitude, your future goals and other stuff.
• You may lose some of your friends because you are not spending so much time with them as you were spending before.
• It may happen that you spend most of your Me time thinking useless stuff. (This is not a problem actually we need to understand that these creative ideas just come when you were somewhere else.
• You may fall in depression or in a bad habit of overthinking which will lead to frustration. (This will happen only when you actually do not do any work in your me-time).
NOTE:- Me time is not for thinking useless stuff. It is for doing creative things or simply reading books or going through your day to day routine and finding out new ways to improve. it.
Guys! Consistency is the key. It is very very important for you guys to know that the more time you spend in it the more you will be successful in life. It is important to maintain a balance in your life.
The examples I have used above are some that I use to follow in my starting period. I have changed, it a lot according to my requirements.
There are a number of books that will help you understand what is the importance of me-time. Some are as follow
• Steal like an artist by Austin kelon
• Deep work.
