It’s exactly a month now; I got married and left my Job, shifted to new place with my wife. Even after a month there are still many thing need to be completed like interior designing to our new house, cleaning our brand new wardrobe and much more…. When we finally listed down the things that we need to complete & things that we need to bu,y we purposely taken out the TV from the list as it will be the most time wasting machine & can distract us from work. While discussing the same with wife I almost reminded few more things that really waste our valuable time and decrease productivity.
- Television –
When I was bachelor I used to have dinner with friends & almost every time while doing our dinner TV was on. Television reduces the conversation among the family as well as cut downs the productivity. Being a blogger I can relate to this, as many time before I write this post; I wasted my valuable time watching TV programs. TV in any way does not help to build business, instead it take us away from business. We don’t get anything out of it, just few news and laugh gags that’s it!! Avoiding TV shows is crucial thing to become a entrepreneur! Cutting down the time that we waste in front of TV and improving our family time is also great way to succeed in relationship.
- Facebook –
This the second thing that might waste our productive time. I said ‘might’ because being a blogger I cant forget power of social networking! Facebook is also an important part of life for many of us but is it worth just browsing many unwanted updates that facebook randomly throws on our walls??? Off course not, all updates on facebook are not worth reading it just waste your valuable time. Many time I get distracted because of facebook, but still I can’t help myself to keep far away from facebook. I do planned to reduce my time that I spend on facebook as much as I can and to utilise it build my business as well as relationships.
Faebook either help you to build your business successfully by diverting peoples to your venture or can destroy your productive time by keeping you engaged in many non sense things that we keep doing on facebook. I amaze how can people have time to just update there status about what small things they are doing, like ‘I am feeling bored’! It always better to leverage the such great platform to build your brand and improve your business!
- Surfing The Web
Yep, this is another thing that can waste our time if we are not surfing for some better reason. Many time I found myself surfing unwanted website which at the end waste my time. I head to reddit to submit URL of my latest post but most of time I ended upon reading something else which not my priority that time. If you are working 9 to 5 in a office then here you can’t relate but those who are working from home can get distracted. It always better to reduce such unwanted anonymous surfing and utilize that time to build our business better way, if you are blogger it is better to leave a valuable comment on some ones great post rather than reading some unwanted stuff that can’t provide value.
- Reading entertainment section of news papers
Yes this can be a big time wasting activity. Many news papers comes with a entertainment section mostly dedicated to movies, actor-actresses gossips, late night parties and what not….. how does it relate to our business, relations? Not in any way….so there should big NO for this section!
Finally your turn!
Is there any other activity that we do that waste our time? What is it, that distract you from doing your important work or distract from your business? Does you found the way out to avoid such unwanted things and to concentrate business?
