Growing up, you may have wondered why studies were so important. At that same time, it was an absolute norm to hear teachers and parents emphasizing gaining knowledge. According to them, the more the better. And just like that, those with plenty of facts on the tips of their fingers were smarter than the rest.

A little creativity perhaps
Before we actually had clocks, the world knew of an invention called the candle clock.This object burned for a good few hours.
And in the end, if you needed an alarm for some reminder, you’d get it immediately.But how? See, all you had to do was push a nail inside the desired time length. And when the candle melted to that point, it would fall down, hitting the metal holder.
