Now, let’s get to 5 daily time wasters that you should stop right now:
#5 Pointlessly scrolling through social media
This seems to be one of the biggest time wasters during this day and age.
Many of us find ourselves scrolling through social media feeds for hours on end without even realizing how much time we’re losing.
Let’s face it: there isn’t much purpose in doing this. When you’re bored, scrolling through social media may be your first thought, but ask yourself, “Is this going to help me improve my life?” and “Why am I doing this?”
I’m not saying you shouldn’t go through social media since it’s full of extremely creative information that can spark an idea for a business you’re working on, but you should never let it waste your time.
#4 Watching TV out of habit
This one feels almost as bad as the meaningless social media scrolling I mentioned before.
I know a lot of folks who, when bored or with nothing else to do, immediately settle down in front of the television. Worst of all, the stuff people consume as a result is equally meaningless!
Again, I’m not suggesting that you eliminate TV from your daily routine entirely, but you should attempt to limit the amount of time you spend watching it and prioritize other useful things before deciding to become a couch potato for the day.
#3 Investing in relationships that don’t add value to your life
We regularly invest in worthless interactions with complete strangers for no apparent reason as the social media jungle grows more diversified by the second.
I understand that we all desire to make new acquaintances and meet new people now and then. The requirement is that these folks should bring some kind of value to your life; else, you’ll be texting for hours on end for no apparent purpose.
I understand that some of us form strong attachments to people fast, and that’s fine; nevertheless, you must recognize that your time is far more important than you may believe, and you must invest it wisely in the people who give value to your life.
#2 Being disorganized
I’m not going to lie; this is something that I’m still guilty of.
You may believe that organizing your possessions and your workstation on a regular basis is worthless because everything will quickly become cluttered again.
Consider how much time you wasted yesterday trying to locate a pen you left on your desk or a book you were reading that you simply left on your bed. Do you see what I’m saying?
Being more organized will not only help you be more productive, but it will also save you a lot of time!
I understand that we sometimes feel like supermen or superwomen and try to complete all of our everyday tasks in one go.
If you’re guilty of this, I don’t blame you. We all value our time and want to be able to enjoy it, and we often believe that the only way to do so is to complete our daily responsibilities as quickly as possible.
Multitasking, on the other hand, is not an option. Consider this: is the amount of work you put into something when focusing solely on that activity the same amount of effort you would put into it if you were juggling five other tasks at the same time?
Too many people associate multi-tasking with productivity. True productivity means maintaining a good balance between efficacy and efficiency, and not doing 1000 things at the same time!
Don’t feel bad if you’re guilty of one of the aforementioned activities; we all perform at least one of them on a daily basis.
We sometimes go through life without recognizing how valuable time is. Guys and gals, we only have so much time on this planet, so we need to make the most of every waking second we have.
