A Day In Life: Why I Am Dead?

I woke up early in the morning at 5 AM as a habit and started checking my mails at inspire n ignite to look for new notices and comments. I read every single comment before I delete the auto mail that i receive when someone writes a comment on Inspire n Ignite.

This day was great started working on stuff and posted two early notifications for M.Tech admissions. I guess over 50000 people will read that in in two days, thanks to all who help me posting these notifications. One the same time I get lots of comments from people who are desperately looking for guidance and help and expecting me to answer and when I don’t answer they get annoyed. Today someone who sends notifications was annoyed with my behavior of not answering. I felt sad about it and though I should let all my readers know what do I do in a day.

I would like to share my schedule with readers and I hope they forgive me for not being able to respond to their queries.

5.00 AM — Wake Up ( I use multiple alarms including online ones)
5.30 AM – Get ready pray and read religious texts mostly Quran
6.00 AM – I used to got gym but because of Korean Exam and now M.Tech Admissions Use this time for Inspire n Ignite
7.30 AM – Get ready for office
8.00 AM – Pick a friend on the way and go to office (take coffee and donuts on the way as breakfast)
9.00 AM – I am on office desk or Office library (used to read Korean but finished exam last week)
11.50 AM – Lunch Break
12.40~1.15 – a short nap on office chair
6.30 PM — Dinner time, I eat dinner at office (In Korea they take dinner at this time)
8.30 PM – Work finish time ( because long working hours in Asian countries)
9.00 PM – Back Home
10.00 PM – Talk to Mom or other family members
11.00 PM – check the stats and approve comments at Inspire n Ignite (quite often I do this when talking to family members and it goes long).
11.15~11.30 PM – Read a book and go dead on the bed till next day morning.

Weekend schedules are tighter than ever in life. Working day is good because I don’t need to run around. But on weekends have manage time is a difficult task. I will post a typical weekend schedule on very soon on weekend itself.

Just to share Inspire n Ignite stats to readers, it started getting over a million page views in a month. For last two months the figure is almost same. 150 email on average and 325 comments asking for help. As of now Inspire n Ignite have only one lazy part time worker, Zahid (that is me). I am wondering how he can answer all the people.

I am planning to start a forum soon. Almost work is done but it takes at least a week and I also hope that it will save me from the anger of many readers. I am really thankful all of you who made Inspire n Ignite a one stop for all M.Tech aspirants and I believe with a big heart you will forgive me for not being able to answer you all. At the end I request all the readers to give me some good ideas to improve communication among us. I will try to adopt them to make it more alive and active Inspire n Ignite.

    Hi Zahid,

    I need help to prepare for GATE CSE 2012 exam. I am currently working for TCS and I am not able to start off my studies for the exam. Can you please guide me through the process of preparation by answering the following questions:
    1. I don’t have time to join coaching institutes because of heavy work load. (I sometimes have working hours from 9am to 10pm.)
    2. Can you please teel me how to start my preparation. Any book or any website with study material at one place?
    3. How should I manage my preparation along with my job? Any Suggestions?

    Thanks & Regards

    Sir, Its so kind of you that, inspite of your tight packed schedule, you allocate some time to guide people. But still responding to all the queries from people from all across india and the world might not be possible by a single human. So, I would like to suggest my opinion to you regarding this issue. Sir, why don’t you find someone who has such nobel thoughts as yours, just to help the GATE aspirants as you do, so that your workload decreases, and more queries are clarified.
    Thank you,

    Your daily routine really make me feel how much time I usually loose in my day to day schedule.It also reminds me how lazy I am.

    I don’t know about other persons, but I am a person who need a constant motivation to stay focused.I also want to confess that I mostly read your motivational elixirs more and all these helps me to shape my future.

    So, my heartiest request to you on behalf of your all followers please always take out little time from your busiest schedule to write the motivational columns and don’t stop this ever.

  39. Inayathulla

    U r doing a good job brother.

  40. Nipun Ahuja

    Thanks Zahid! for ur industrious effort, but still unconditional! As we are also more or less linked with your site. We appreciate, if certain work u delegate to us and manage your time. As we understand, running the whole site single handedly is not easy job. and we appreciate, if the success of this site go in leaps n bounds in future also. Plz try to think in this direction. Start delegating work, so that every query could be answered. Previously i also got annoyed for my query not being answered. But now i use this site for information. But if the site get more interactive through Queries (n yes replies too), it would be really very fruitful to us, since one’s query can belong to other also. This happens many time!
