There’s nothing more precious than time. You can have all the money in the world or be healthy enough to keep doctors out of work. But it would mean nothing if you didn’t have time to enjoy them all. This Dusshera, make a vow to avoid wasting time on these following things. 

1. Waiting for the perfect moment to get things done

Just Do It!

We wait for tomorrow to get started on that new diet, for Monday to begin eating healthy, but tomorrow turns in to today and things stay the same. If you keep waiting, it’ll never get done. There’s no better day than today, no better time than now. Just do it, NOW!

2. Micromanaging

It is not possible to control every single thing in your life. You’re going to burn out real quick if you try to do everything. Accept the fact that it’s ok to not do all the things, and that some things are out of your control.

3. Trying to make everyone happy

Let It Go

No matter what you do, it is bound to displease someone or the other. Not all decisions will be universally popular and you shouldn’t fool yourself into thinking so. Just do what is best for most people and go with the flow.

4. Checking your phone constantly

Checking Your Phone

Staying glued to your phone is quite an unhealthy habit. So is phubbing (phone snubbing) which is the act of snubbing someone by checking your phone and ignoring them. It ruins relationships and makes your partner or friend feel unloved and depressed. Keep the phone usage to a minimum and live in the moment.

5. Worrying about what others think of you

We all want to be liked but many of us waste time in worrying about what people think of us. When you’re worrying about the clothes you wear, or screw up, It’s quite likely that most people aren’t even thinking about it, and more likely to think about themselves. If you make mistakes, don’t waste time worrying too much about it. Put things into perspective and look at the big picture. What affects you now will not seem like a big deal in the future. Live and learn.

6. Trying to explain to your parents that Facebook-ing is not a waste of time

It’s hard for the older generation to get social media and modern communication. Facebook is a great way to stay connected and perhaps one of the only ways to stay in touch with people you might otherwise not connect with often. Just don’t waste all your time online, there’s life beyond Facebook. There’s Twitter and Instagram too. Just kidding, we’re talking about real life, get out and socialize in reality too!

7. Watching prime time television news

Watching the news can be depressing when the media tends to sensationalize the smallest of things and blow them out of proportion. These days, debates have degenerated into mind-numbing shouting matches. With useless stats all across the screens and endless replays of the same clips, watching news is a time waster like no other. Avoid, just avoid.

8. Trying to reason with internet trolls

Like they say, 'don't wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty but the pig likes it.' It's a foolish endeavour to argue with people over the internet. Trolls tend to ignore minor things like facts and reality to prove their point. You won't gain anything from this and merely end up pulling your hair out.

9. Trying to win the Delhi is better than Mumbai or vice versa debate

Debating

Any debate on the topic is as useful as the aforementioned televised debates on prime television. Let’s face it, both cities have their pros and cons and it’s better to just acknowledge them and avoid unnecessary criticism of either city. Judge not. Save your time for better things
