Time Wasters

Part of being human is that we are all time wasters. Sometimes time wasted can be productive, it gives you a break, releases tension, however most time wasted causes extra stress because what you know you should be doing is being put off.

The aim is to identify when you are wasting time and whether it is a welcome break, or whether changes should be made?

Some time wasters:

  • Disorganisation
  • Procrastination
  • Social Interaction
  • Perfection
  • Visitors
  • Telephone calls
  • Television
  • Mail
  • Email
  • Computer activities – facebook, twitter, games …

Take a moment to consider what are your time wasters?


I found this fantastic exercise that I recommend. Now that you have identified what your time wasters are, split your time wasters into two groups, those within your control and those beyond your control.


Within My Control Beyond My Control

Take a moment to consider what will you do with the time wasting activities that are within your control?

What should / will you do with the time wasting activities that are beyond your control?
