Victor Hugo (1802-1885)
Considered the most well-known French Romantic writer
I was going over my calendar the other day and wondering where all my time was slipping away. I knew I had time wasters creeping in and was making new resolutions to get rid of the “extra”.
To convince myself how much time I was wasting, I did a little math:
Suppose I spent 15 minutes each day doing something that was a complete waste of time.
15 min= 0.25 hours
365 days=1 yr
therefore: 0.25 X 365 = 91.25
That’s 91.25 hrs wasted every year if I spent 15 minutes each day doing somthing useless!
Eliminating weekends, holidays: 65 hrs wasted in a year!
Averaged between the two it’s about 2 work weeks more in my life.
How many calls could I make?
How much could I get done on that book I want to write?
What could I do with my family in that much time?
Think about that the next time you want to cruise the net when you could be doing something else. I know I will.
