Waste time productively

72 hours. That’s how long I wasted watching four and a half seasons of 24. I will never get those hours back. Now that’s a waste! It was not relaxing (it was actually quite stressful and anxiety inducing), it wasn’t intellectually stimulating and I didn’t learn anything. Fortunately I came to my senses and stopped watching it.

From now on, when I waste time, I’m going to try to do it by learning something new, even if it’s something I won’t ever use.

Wise words from Brandon Keepers. I've "wasted" a lot of time going through his codez.
