Prioritization of activities/tasks

Like I discussed in one of the previous posts, we have only stipulated time in our hands. At any point of time our TO DO list will be so big that the 24 hours are not enough to complete all the activities.

If that is the case, how come some people are able to succeed and others are struggling with their activities and tasks? Only answer to this is prioritizing your TO DO list.

We should see what is important and focus on those activities. Most of the times, we keep doing the fire fighting activities and run around with small repeated routine tasks. We need to come out of that and understand what are more important activities which help us in our long term and short term goals for our life and focus on those only.

If you could not complete some mundane activity do not panic but if you cannot finish some thing important then feel for it and focus more on it.

We can do only 2 to 3 activities per day so do not stack up so many tasks and tumble. Instead put simple post-its with top 3 activities per day and focus only on them.

Relocating to India – Part 4

Drinking Water:

One important point we should always remember is the pollution factors associated with drinking water. Apart from pollution, in India the water varries alot  from place to place in terms of the calcium content, fluorides and other minerals in it. Also water contamination and getting ill health due to water is pretty common. So we should be very careful in consuming water.

Most of the times, we buy bottled water when we go out to restaurants or any other eatery joints. Also if you want to order any fresh juice be sure on the quality of the water they are using.

Having a water purifier at home is very common in India. Look here to understand the different products in market.

Using a system with Reverse Osmosis is the best and I used the same. Eureka Forbes is the most trusted/popular brand in India for water purifiers.

Once you  have water purifying system at home, it is better to carry water in your car always instead of buying.  please see this link to get an idea of the cool kegs/jugs popular in India. Milton is one good brand I always used.http://www.indiamart.com/singhania-overseas/milton-water-jugs.html   You can buy them in any big home appliance store.

This kind of jug in your car helps you to get proper home purified water and also it keeps the temperature of your in the desired range. Due to the hot weather conditions in India, we always prefer to drink chilled water and also we need lots of water.

While buying packaged drinking water, always buy the one which is RO done. Do not buy the one which says, its a natural packaged water. I remember using this extensively.http://www.coca-colaindia.com/products/kinley_water.html
