How Time Gets Wasted

Time is a limited resource. Many of us struggle to make the most of it and waste much of our time. We each have a limited supply depending on how long we stay alive. There are a lot of various ways in which time can be wasted, some of which include:

  1. You have probably wasted time if you keep putting off tasks until the last minute or simply not starting them.
  2. If you get sidetracked by social media, emails, and other interruptions, that detract from the task at hand, that time is gone.
  3. If you take on too many tasks or commitments, resulting in a lack of focus and productivity, you are wasting time.

If you fail to plan or have a schedule you follow, it is effortless to waste time.

  • Meetings are a waste of time if they do not pertain to you or if they become unproductive.

Other factors contributing to time waste include:

  • lack of motivation
  • fatigue
  • disorganization

It is essential to identify and overcome these problems to make the most of our limited time. By prioritizing tasks, minimizing distractions, and creating a clear action plan, we can increase productivity and efficiently achieve our goals.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
