It makes a lot of sense to waste time because we want to. Downtime is important. It’s great to chill out every once in a while and do nothing – just because we can.
It makes no sense to waste time because we are stuck (and frustrated..) or have nothing else to do. Stuck in a queue or in-between meeting? Pop on an audio book, catch up on the news or blogs you read. There are no excuses.
Wasting time when we don’t want to because we don’t know what to do in this day and age is criminal. It could be argued that all we need is a list.
In the final reckoning, how we spent our time is all that will remain of us. There’s a lot of good to be done. And much less time than required to do it in.
Let’s get a move on, then and start making those lists…now. There’s not a moment to be wasted.
