Making an impact on the world around you.

Current Mood: productive

I realized today that the one thing I really dislike to do is waste time. I weighed a lot of different things that I like and dislike, but it was no contest. I get aggravated with myself when I lose an hour or two and didn't really accomplish anything.

So on the ride home from work today, I decided to work on improving my use of time. I usually sit around for an hour or so once I get home from work, but today I ran up and down my apartment, looking for things I needed to do and have been neglecting. I paid some bills online. Threw away all of my trash. Washed some clothes. Mailed my sister's birthday card. Cleaned up my bathroom, bedroom, living room, and kitchen. And made a quick dinner. I worked at break-neck speed to get everything done until my place seemed in order. It took about 45 minutes.

I tend to space out a lot more these days. Maybe if I focus on what I'm doing more often, I'll have more time to spend doing what I really enjoy. I plan to go to bed around 11pm tonight and wake up at 6:30am. I want to exercise a bit and eat breakfast at home before work. Let's see how this routine works out...

Ahh... clean house. My reward? A cold beer and a video game.

I can see where you're coming from, but you don't want to go too far in either direction. Slacking off too much, something that I'm guilty of, is bad. But so too is only doing work all the time. You need to find a sort of medium where you can stay happy. The extremes will either make you lazy or stressed way the hell out.

Yeah. I try to keep a balance. I just like to make sure I'm doing what I really want to do at any point in time. Sometimes that's goofing off, other times, it's working.

I don't know. I'm 25 now and I guess I worry about wasting time more than I used to.
