What is life, but the very moment of time you’re in right now?
Life is right now. This moment. This second.
Therefore, when you waste time, you’re wasting your life.
If you’re expecting the typical list, of time-wasters like spending too much time on Facebook or Twitter or watching too many reruns of SVU, well… this isn’t that kind of list.
While those things can indeed be wastes of time, they aren’t always. Sometimes, it’s good to relax and watch a show you really enjoy. Or get the lastest Facebook updates.
But there are some time wasters that are rarely conditional, and are pretty much always going to waste your time.
The thing is, they are sometimes much harder to spot. We know Twitter can be a waste of time. We know that Pinterest can suck up hours of our lives in one sitting.
But this list I’ve prepared for you? It’s full of things you often don’t even realize you’re doing. And many of us have wasted years participating in these activities.
So today, I’m giving you a little reminder to be mindful of your time and help you take back your life.
Behold, 15 Ways to Completely Waste Your Time
1. Care what other people think
2. Worry about what may or may not happen tomorrow
3. Hold on to regrets
4. Quit too soon
5. Withhold forgiveness
6. Be something other than you
7. Self-medicate your stress with drugs and alchol
8. Live in denial
9. Give less than your best
10. Let others make your decisions for you
11. Give in to irrational fears
12. Place blame
13. Not use your voice (verbal or otherwise)
14. Blindly follow the crowd
15. React in a spiteful manner
