The way we manage our time is one of the biggest differences between “high-functioning” and “low-functioning” individuals.
For instance, in high-functioning individuals, scheduling is automatic. You can pretty much schedule anything you want to do at any time. So if you don’t want to do something, you can schedule it for later.
However, many people simply dont schedule things at all. For instance, they don’t schedule their days in advance, or they schedule their days out of what they think are the best times for them. In fact, sometimes the best time for them to do a task is when they dont have to be around anyone. But because people dont schedule, and because there are a million things people can do at any time, they end up getting burnt out.
Unfortunately, one of the more common mistakes is to schedule in advance. So if you dont schedule something, you are just going to forget about it. You are going to find that you haven’t done it for a month, and you are going to find that you haven’t done it for a year.
This is how the scheduling system in every major software package works. If you schedule something in to your calendar, then you can forget about it. But if you put something in to your calendar and forget about it, then you will look at it and find it has been a month and you forget about it. Even the best scheduling systems are no match for human beings. They just cannot remember if a task has been scheduled or not.
I don’t know if I’m the only one who remembers to run cron every day or what, but the fact is that cron works like this. It keeps a list of scheduled jobs. If you schedule something to happen every day, then you know you have put something in to your cron list. But if you schedule something to happen once a month, then you will look up that it is not on your list and you will have to look it up again.
This is why I hate cron. It is so easy for you to forget that something is scheduled or not scheduled in your cron list. Even more annoying is if you change your schedule too frequently.
That was a case where I had to look up what cron was. Turns out cron is the scheduling feature that makes our life so easy. In fact, cron is more like a set of habits or a routine. It’s just a habit that you have to keep up. Like most of the things on our website, cron is a pretty good idea.
cron is a set of programs that run on every box on our servers. It is a tool to help automate the way you do things. You have one cron file for each server you have. That means if you have 20 servers, you have 20 cron files that run every day. You’ll also have one cron file for your home computer so you’ll have one cron file for every day you work there.
Each cron file has a group of commands that run them. There is a main cron file that runs the whole server, and then there is a separate one for each server. So if you have 20 servers, the main one will run at 21:00 every day. The second one runs at 01:00 every day. There is a lot more information about cron here, but basically it is a way to run programs on a schedule.
