“Short as life is, we make it still shorter by the careless waste of time”

 

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.
