This is the second week in a row that I have not had to work in the middle of the week. I have had a hard time adjusting to what used to be my norm, and have wasted a lot of time. The worst thing about wasting time is that you don't realize the seriousness of it while you are doing it. Like a lot of ill-advised activities, you "just do it". Then, sometime later, you go "DOH!" a la Homer Simpson and smack your forehead. Hard. Which hurts. Ow. At some point in my future I am going to seriously regret all my wasted time. Like somewhere close to the end probably. Right now, I am just going to make a conscious effort not to waste much more. I mean, I am sure I will always waste SOME time, I am, after all, a procrastinator extraordinaire. I majored in it in college, and have kept up my studies since then. I think the key is to do something worthwhile that is VISIBLE, so that you have that thing to point at and say, "This is what I DID today." Then, it doesn't matter what else you waste your time on, you always have that thing that you DID. Just set a time limit. Like, this is what I DID in the last 24 to 48 hours. Don't, for example, use the phrase, "This is what I DID this month" unless it is big. Time limits are important. Unless you are the Doctor.
Then, time is irrelevant.
See, I can work a feel-good Friday moment into anything!!
