My grandfather was like that. He sais not to waste even 1 second in life because it is very precious. Now he is dead but I still remember his words. Time is precious but we cannot always run after time as if we can catch it. What do you think?

I am not so sure what is to waste time. I´m a proffesional daydreamer but I don´t think that´s a waste of time. For me it´s living a meaningful life

Yes it's quite true. Every single moment counts, every minute, every second, every microsecond, every nanosecond can make a huge difference! I personally never try to waste my time and to do things in the most time-efficient ways. Although, not wasting every second does not mean not having fun! because if you don't have fun and try to work every second, then it's not actually making the most of time. What is making most of every second to me? It's making sure you don't keep postponing what you can finish off now, it means having enough fun, not too much not too less, to keep you mentally and physically healthy, it means laughing a bit, it basically means making the fullest of life in a positive way and not throwing away life! :P

I think it is not necessary to count every seconds.If i do that,i will fell very tired.As long as you complete the things what you have to do in time,it is ok.Your grandmother'wrods may mean you should make full use of the time.In deed,a waste of time is to waste our life.Treasure our time.

Its not possible to utilize every second of your life. What ever you do, you will be wasting time in between. Face it, man is made that way. i respect what your grandfather said but its easier said than done. Another thing is that it all depends on what's your idea of wasting time. I watch movies and surf and play video games from time to time. Anyone else would think im wasting my time, but i don't think the same. Its necessary for me to relieve the pressure of studies... All you have to do is live this moment the way you see fit. Just dont feel bad thinking you are wasting away. You are doing it because you like it.

Yes dear, you grandfather has told the right thing. Time is very precisous and one should not waste it. But at the same time it is also true how you utilize you time. You need to do smart work rather than hard work. Ofcourse hard work is also necessary, but need to be done in smart way.And thats how we can save our time. So it is us who decide and learn from our mistake where we went wrong, and how we wasted time, and how we can avoid the same in future.
