Wasted Time

Q: What’s the worst way to waste time?
A: Working hard on an unimportant task.

Working really hard on something makes you feel like you’re using your time well. And doing a good job makes it feel like time well spent.

But what if the task doesn’t really matter?

Working hard on things that don’t ultimately move you closer to your goal is a waste of time. Play hard, rest hard, or work hard on things that matter–otherwise you’re wasting your time.

Actionable Question:  What task can you ditch this week that isn’t actually helping you?

Make your time count,
