I didn’t used to hate it…in fact, I used to love wasting time. I was addicted, and I couldn’t get enough of it. And I bet you love wasting time too.
I bet you always say “I just don’t have enough time”. Uhh, yes you fucking do. You have more time in your life than Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, and a whole host of phenomenal people did. You have the time, you’re just not using it the way you should. You are spending a whole chunk of time on stuff that is pointless (time wasters) instead of what you should be spending it on.
We give “time wasters” different names, of course:
- “I’m staying informed”
- “I’m just relaxing”
- “I love this show”
- “I worked all day long”
- “I don’t want to miss something”
- Watching the news
- Reading pointless e-mails
- Deleting unwanted e-mails
- Watching TV
- Checking Facebook
- Reading news articles
- Reading internet comments
- 4,264 other things
So what the hell can I do with my time?
Okay, so it can suck to have actual free time. You know why? Because people don’t know how to spend their time. They don’t know how to be productive instead of just using up their minutes until they die.
Sit there and think
One super easy thing to use your free time for is to sit there and think. Some of the most successful people in the world do this (Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, etc.) Sit down, get comfortable, and just allow your mind to wander. You’ll be amazed at what you realize, and how much clarity you can find in your world just by allowing your mind to find the clarity.
