Tim a Computer Scientist

What Makes Me a Computer Scientists?

What is Computer Science?
Computer science is the study of how data and instructions are processed, stored and communicated by computing devices. It involves designing software and addressing fundamental scientific questions about the nature of computation but also involves many aspects of hardware and the architecture of large computer systems.

Computer scientists create the brains in our smartphones, they keep airplanes from falling out of the sky, they help surgeons do a better job and they automate aspects of manufacturing, to name but a few. The reality is, there are many different roles that a computer scientist could fill, but any computer science role is likely to involve:

  • thinking about and conceptualising computational and maths-related problems and challenges
  • developing new products or solve practical computing problems
  • conducting research involving experimentation and modelling
  • working as part of a research team with programmers, IT professionals, and mechanical, electrical or software engineers to solve problems and create new products
  • studying, experimenting and investigating technological fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics and virtual reality
  • seeking to improve the performance of existing computer systems and software
  • developing new hardware or computing techniques and materials

Key skills for computer scientists

  • Excellent maths skills
  • Excellent computer and technology knowledge and skills
  • An ability to analyse problems and trace them to their core causes
  • A systematic approach to work and problem solving
  • A stickler for accuracy
  • A strong ability to anticipate and diagnose problems
  • Ability to organise and classify large amounts of information

If you’ve studied computer scienceyou will have gained many technical and non-technical skills which are highly valued by employers, from leadership to programming.  The increasing scope of computer science means you have plenty of choice in a wide variety of highly specialized areas. 

Computer technologies are integral to modern life, so you’re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include financial organizations, management consultancy firms, software houses, communications companies, data warehouses, multinational companies, governmental agencies, universities and hospitals. 

As always, it’s extremely beneficial to have completed relevant work experience. You should also consider compiling a portfolio of your own independent projects outside of your degree, which could be in the form of programming, moderating online or even building an app. This will demonstrate to employers your interest in the subject and your problem-solving skills, creativity and initiative.

To wrap up below I share some careers where your computer science degree would be a perfect fit…

You could also pursue computer science careers in teaching, IT training, journalism, management or entrepreneurship.

How to be Less Busy and More Effective

In our hectic modern world, we believe that rushing from one task to the next and managing multiple priorities shows everyone that we are productive.

Indeed, because of this cult of busyness, too many of us feel overwhelmed, overworked, and behind their “busy” schedule.

You, just as many other ambitious people, follow some productivity and time management tips for high-level performance and time optimization.

However, the result that you are doing more but achieving less.

What’s going wrong? What is the one million secret on how to be more effective than productive? Which powerful techniques can multiply your productive hours?

Let us have a look at some tips and hack from successful people on how to stretch your time, your effectiveness, and answer these questions in this post.

 Quit complaining about how much you have to do

Usually, we complain because we feel powerless to get what we want — just excuses for not doing anything to help your situation. So what we have to do is analyze our complaints before talking about them.

When you complain, nobody wants to help you.
— Stephen Hawking

Folks are looking for people who can impact their lives positively, who can inspire them for more. If you complain about your problems most of the time, you have a negative outlook on your situation and life.

On the other hand, you can complain to yourself about feeling overwhelmed with the demands on your time.

There is no need for any study to be presented to understand that in general, we spend around 4–5 hours per day on our daily routine tasks like getting dressed, eating, gym, household chores, etc., along with the full-time job. No wonder we cannot get everything that we planned for a day.

And the #1 question is here: how can we manage our time better?

The secret is that you should 👇

  • Work only on important tasks.
  • Don’t overload your schedule.
  • Take your daily routine into account.
  • During execution, don’t think about all your planned items. Just focus on your current task at hand.
  • Once that’s done, move on to the next one. Thinking about your whole day of work will drain your mental energy needlessly.

Be busy, but not stressed.

Eliminate unimportant activities from your life

Of course, it’s easier to say than to do.

Human nature craves the satisfaction of achievement. We are seeking for results but rarely progress. That’s why we often tend to engage in trivial activities first. For example, by taking a course and get a certificate for the accomplishment, learn new 100 Spanish words in a month, and so on.

It explains the pointless accomplishments of a random activity that does not lead towards our goal — our success.

The most productive people among us regularly ask themselves which tasks they can eliminate because they focus on results and know that success is not about the number of tasks you finish, but about their significance.

The advice here is, to begin with 👇

  • Multiplying your time by going through everything you do in a day with eliminating mindset;
  • Cutting off unnecessary distractions like the TV, Netflix, or video games to return to the effective mode of operation;
  • Organizing and prioritizing first the tasks and needs that have to be done to fulfill urgent commitments and are important.

What is important is seldom urgent, and what is urgent is seldom important. — Dwight Eisenhower

With that being said, and with a little bit more effort by using the Eisenhower Matrix, prioritizing your tasks based on their urgency will be more comfortable.

Enhance productivity using the 80/20 rule

The 80/20 rule by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto states that in any pursuit, 80% of the results will come from 20% of the efforts.

And highly productive people are 👇

  1. Trying to identify the most important 20% of their work to maximize efficiency.
  2. Looking at ways to cut down the other 80% of their schedule.
  3. And finding more time for things that make the biggest impact.

More about the Pareto principle, you can read here. This method will help you focus. The next step is to take the right action to solve your issues.

Start working on getting the motivation to continue

Motivation comes after productivity and not before.

As soon as you planned and prioritized everything, do not try to look for motivation and inspiration right after. Instead, focus on getting started — whether you are motivated or not.

You don’t need to tackle everything at once.

The trouble of getting motivated, it’s often because we are looking at the massive scope of a task or problem at the first glance.

Just start doing something, and you will find it easier to keep going because taking action is what leads to motivation, which in turn leads to more action from your side.

The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. — Confucius


Use your “lost” time
Last but not least, and more effectively, is to do your chores while you cannot work on essential tasks.
Listen to podcasts on your commute. Reply to Whatsapp messages while waiting in line. Read a book while on a plane. Call your doctor for an appointment while waiting for a meeting to start, etc.
There are endless examples of how you can use “lost” time to get required (but not vital) stuff done.

Conclusion
Gain control of your daily schedule by carefully evaluating your daily activities and determine what can be eliminated, what can be delegated, and what should become a current or future priority.
Know when to take action and when to be patient, focus on your current priority without distractions.
Because productivity will increase with your efficiency and proper time management. You must have heard the phrase:
Winners don’t do different things. They do things differently. — Shiv Khera
