Don't Waste Your Time, Spend It Carefully on Things that Matter to You

Your life has an expiry date.

That means you have finite time at your disposal.

You might get this incorrect impression time and again that you have a lot of time in your hand.

And that you have many more years to go before you will drop dead!

However, that is not the case.

Once you are clear about this, you should exercise care and caution in how you spend your time.

If you do not spend your time on things that matter to you in the real sense, your time goes for a waste.


So, how do people end up "wasting" their time thinking mistakenly all along that they are "spending" it:
  • They attend training which is not really required
  • They attend meeting where they are not needed
  • They become a part of a networking group and indulge in unnecessary events and activities
  • They volunteer for things for which they should have refused to get involved with
  • They join groups and forums they should have stayed away from

What is the way to come out of this rut?

What is the way to ensure you spend your time and not waste it?

The key to this is to know the kind of person you are.

And what are the things that excite you and that you are truly passionate about.

Improving your understanding of and skills at the things you love is crucial.

Simply speaking, that is the only thing that decides whether your time was spent or was it wasted.

You should stop doing anything that you don't feel strongly about, or which does not excite you.

So, how can you stop "wasting" your time?
  • Stop attending that training which is not really required
  • Stop attending that meeting where you are not needed
  • Stop becoming a part of a networking group
  • Stop volunteering for things for which you should have refused to get involved with
  • Stop associating with groups and forums you should have stayed away from

Stop wasting effort.

And start spending it.

In both cases, you end up using the finite time at your disposal.

The difference is the impact it creates in your life.

If it helps to improve you in becoming better in something you love to do, then the impact is positive.

If it is anything else, it is a sheer waste of time.

Be prudent with your time and do only those things that you would really want to do.

And stay miles away from every other thing.

Don's waste your time.

Start spending it.

And do that right away.
