Time, in spite of that it is an invention of humanity, is extremely important for life. The waste of precious time is like a quick drive toward death. And in this regard, no one gives a good example because almost all people give a negligible number of hours to what is really important, and an unspeakably greater number of years to those things which need is questionable. This can be easily seen before you go to sleep – it’s enough just to remember your entire day in detail. What were you doing? Was this helpful or not? Did you get pleasure or did you just “eat time” without positive emotions and benefits? We think that most of the day was terribly unproductive, but this can be fought. You can start with a total ban on the cases, the uselessness of which is beyond doubt.
Anxiety about what people think of you
The opinion of others matters only in one case – if this opinion will help you in work, personal life or self-development. This opinion is called an expert opinion. You can also consider a friendly opinion useful because it cannot be intrusive and carry in itself seeds of discord. But even in these cases, you need to be careful before asking for advice. It is important to protect yourself from the influence of other people’s opinions because they can stall the work, make it unbearable, and even turn life into hell. Remember, there’s no point in worrying about what people think about you. This is a senseless hassle that will not bring you anything. In the depths of your soul, you always know what you are doing right and what is not right.
Gossip about people
Great people criticize ideas, not other people. And if you think that your negative opinion about a person is worthy of being said aloud, then just shut up. There is no need for this. Better listen to the silence or think about the fact that there is such a creature in the world as a Tardigrada, which is almost impossible to kill. Men do not gossip. Remember it.
How much time do you spend on envy? We think that a lot, while you do not even realize how bad envy affects your personality. It makes you weak. Instead of focusing on growth, you are looking for the reasons for your insignificant situation. There is only one way out, and it’s banal – just stop jealous of other people. Around you, you will see a lot of people who have achieved success in one way or another, but none of these people is worthy of the cause in your soul envy, that will turn you into an idiot.
If you want a good car, then work and earn. Do you want to become popular and powerful? Participate in public projects, use the Internet or communication. Most people start from scratch before climbing to the top, and this is a big plus.
“Everything could be different!”
Yes, it could, but it turned out as it turned out. The world, if you did not know, reacts weakly to your thoughts and desires, it is as it is. If you do not accept reality, then it wipes its feet on your face. So accept reality, try to make it better and do not think that everything could be different – it takes a hell of a lot of time.
What you absorb
On some things in your life, you do not have to spend time at all because they change you from the inside, saturate your thoughts with anger, resentment, sadness. For example, there is no need to watch issues of criminal news – they do not provide any useful information, they just tell you that you live in a world of wilderness. Talk-show is a waste of time in the absolute, in them, you will not find the truth, only a kind of similarity. Try to be attentive to the fact that you look, read, listen. Just remember that fragments of your personality are formed from the “consumable”, so if you watch the garbage, your personality will also be filled with this garbage.
Spending money to impress a woman
It’s just stupid, and we’ll explain why. Imagine a woman who will bite on your purse. What kind of woman will this be? Should you spend your life with her? She can be beautiful, pretty, smart, but the fact that she is with you just because of money will lead to a logical ending – the loss of that money. If a woman does not care about your savings, she can be insulted, bewildered by the way you spend money. Clearly, one thing is certain – there will be no benefit from this.
When you ask other people to do your work
You still do not understand that this is useless? First, you can not do your job better if you delegate it to another. Secondly, when you do not do everything yourself, then you become dependent on the performers – they can twist you as they want. In addition, there is too much dependence in our society to create a new dependency just for nothing. We are not at all independent. Even a piece of meat that was bought by you today in the store went through several stages of dependence: the farmer raised a pig, the butcher hammered the pig, the seller put it up for sale, and only then you bought yourself this unfortunate meat. What does it say? That you need at least three people (and in fact in much more quantity) to just make a couple of cutlets in a frying pan. Therefore, there is no need for you to increase this chain at times – do it yourself, if possible.
