How many hours do you waste per day?
Lollygagging and schlepping wastes a lot of hours when we know we need to focus on getting tasks done. Depending on the day, I probably waste between 3 and 5 hours. And you?
Well I think I waste about 5-6 hours on weekends and about 1-2 hours on weekdays
Well, let me see. I take my time getting up because you cannot rise too fast it is unhealthy. I get dressed, have breakfast, and get on HP to check my email, etc.. I stop for lunch and get back to writing. I stop for supper and get back to writing. I read before I go to bed.
I do any needed chores when necessary. How many hours would you say?
Sounds like a good use of time to me. :-) Thanks for answering.
I cannot sit around and do nothing. The only time that I watch TV is when I am eating. As soon as I finish eating - off goes the TV.
Tough question in a sense. Some would say I am wasting my time answering this question, yet they are not a part of this community. Then again I would say they are wasting their time working on their three wheeler in the garage for a trip at Easter time.
Perspective comes to offer us both a contrast and compare while perception, feelings, become subjective based on how others view the time wasted in many cases.
Actually, time wasted for myself today is, well, none if I give pause to consider me of my 'Self' and not others. I worked with someone once who complained that I drank coffee in the mornings at my desk saying I was wasting company time and should be ready to work when I arrived. He did not understand in my view that sip of coffee allowed me to become more focused on what I was doing and being as accurate as possible with the task. The oddity and the humor was he wasted my time with his constant criticism. Then, one must ponder did he waste his time?
Yes, I propose most do not waste there time much at all. It comes down to perspective, perceptions, and the view of the present or immediate social perspective offering a judgement too often rather than discernment . . . maybe? Ponder the world and especially this nation's position today seeking to not waste time and possibly acting with haste. Then compare and contrast if more time was given rather than less. Would it have been better?
An example is I bet as I waste my time watching TV I would realize there is a commercial every 15 minutes or at least every hour asking or soliciting people for a law suit. Then ponder original cause. Would that time wasted for those law suits in totality have occurred for those usually prescription medications or industrial work related causes occurred if more time was spent with research and etc?
oopps! This is a long answer written and shared. Was time wasted to write? I type at average 25wpm or so (when not thinking or pondering) and most read at 225wpm on average. Whose time was wasted for this approximately 400 or so word comment, which is a social interaction? Would time have not been wasted if it was a TV commercial? For whom? The audience or the creators?
Perspective and Perception . . . ?
I thank any who did read and their time whether they agreed or not with this perspective of perception.
Look at it this way, I consider writing answers/comments, or reading others, learning to improve your mind.
I think we are on the same page The Examiner-1. I would support your view the fact of just reading them. I read much more than I answer.
Hi tsmog, didn't have TIME to read this when you first posted, lol. I just read it and appreciate your very thoughtful answer, as always. :-)
Love that word lollygagging.....I'd say I waste a couple of hours a day? It's hard to tell. One man's waste of time is another man's saving time?
Years ago I decided to make a list of everything I did in the average day and measure each item on that list in hours and minutes. This was way back when my two sons were growing up, I had my own small business and life was truly hectic.
Top priority was obviously raising the kids - well, earning some cash - and all the other chores and jobs we need to do to survive and thrive. I didn't waste that much time.
But I found out I spent too much time in nature - taking walks, looking at the trees and animals and what not - oh and wondering about the mysteries in life, like black holes, space and time and human fate, that sort of thing. Often I was with the kids or with family so I couldn't say it was definitely a waste of time!
I've always loved escapism - daydreaming, sitting in a suntrap with a poetry book or two - yes - wasting too much time many would say! I would disagree of course.
I would disagree also: Taking walks - physical exercise; Looking at trees, animals, etc. - research/observing/learning; Daydreaming - brain/mind exercise; Reading poetry - reading & eye exercise.
These are good wastes of time. Thanks, chef-du-jour for your answer.
