We all have habits we wish we could kick (Taco Bell and dipping are two of mine). Most of us have patters of thinking we wish we could change. These habits and thoughts are often annoying, time draining, energy wasting, and something we plain wish that we could boot to the curb.
Maybe it’s pressing snooze 5-times in the AM before stepping out of bed. Maybe it’s the day-ruining habit of checking your work inbox on your cell phone before leaving bed. This habit is sure to turn a day into one spent responding to the requests of others instead of charting your own course. I know, because I’m a vicious and repeat offender.
Sometimes the difficulty is something as simple, yet impossibly unavoidable as not letting the grating behavior of a coworker, peer, or other acquaintance actually affect us.
Aimless hours spent watching TV, stalking Facebook or Twitter, and browsing Pinterest all suck time away from otherwise productive endeavors.
The point is that although any given day feels like it lasts forever, our weeks, months, and years pass so fast they quickly become nearly indistinguishable from one another. Time is precious. And its fleeting. Realize what wastes your time and fix it.
Because when it comes to losing minutes that matter each day, Sweet Brown said it best:: “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
