Are You Managing Or Just Wasting Your Time?

Hi friends! I feel kinda sick and tired this past few days. I think I've worked so hard for just a little earning. So, now I decided to manage my time properly and stop wasting my time to those tasks that just earn a little. You know what I mean. I think managing time is not just for work but also for our daily activities. I want to eliminate those time wasters... Time wasters task, time wasters people & time wasters chores. Life should be easier if we know how to eliminate all these time wasters. What do you think?

Hi! Yes, I know what you mean. I guess I do both: manage and waste. But maybe I don't have a choice yet. Or maybe I'm looking for an excuse saying that. So what tasks will be useful for you now?

Hi, just wanted to add that it's hard sometimes to manage time as it has power to go faster or slower and we can't do anything about it. I hope you are doing much better now in using your time properly. Take care and have a nice day!

I think that we doing a little bit of both, but we have to try a manage it better. My internet connection isn't helping the cause much either so hopefully it takes a little bit of effort in the beginning and then we will start earning something worthwile

Hi, Managing your time is the best way to make your life meaningful and lively. I don't like to waste my time on unnecessary things. it will also waste my energy,so I better concentrate myself on something meaningful to me,or at least can earn money for me. Like in MyLot, I will concentrate on giving my responses to some topic that interest me. To those topic that out of my interest, I won't touch it.

Yes, I tend to do that too. I first of all identify where the potential is for earning money and place them in priority during my working day. There are times when I feel sort of tired and my mind is rebelling and I end up wasting time, doing nothing much like watching videos of youtube, or looking at many website stores wondering what I need to buy. But maybe I am not wasting time, we all need a break from time to time! _Derek

yes.time should be managed preferentially. we should have our order of preference of works to do if we have little time.and also we should compare the results and decide what to do.without it you are simply wasting time..

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, I think I am trying my best to manage my time online ,not just wasting my time online. As far as I am concerned, I think I have spend a long time since I first tried to make some extra money online. Though it cost me so long time. But I think I have learned a lot online. I have managed a lot online. It is worth my time.

Well I think I am just wasting my precious time with my work. Like other normal days I have no task today and I really feel bored. I want to spend that time to learn but I feel tired and I think it is difficult to study. Time management is really important. If you spend so much time in one job, you would forget the other jobs which is more important. I wish to manage my time and I hope I could wake up early everyday for a change.

Indeed it is goes without saying the managing and changing time.We just learn how to used time properly so we don't missed something.Just like in business we need to track down everything to make easy task.

if you can not utilize the best time will incur a loss, so use your best time with a better effort to improve the quality of life

I definately agree with you. I try to fill my life with experiences that will make the most of the time we are given. if you think about it time is the only resource we have that can only be used once and when it is gone you can't get it back. Right now I'm in the process of reorganizing my life. I work 10 hours at the moment and when I'm finished I just go home and sleep. I do make time for movies, friends and family. I want more out of life and as you said Santosmarichris, events and people that waste time must be eliminated.

Hi santosmarichris, Time management is the key to keeping your sanity. I have elimated some of my time busters and I feel very freed. It is important not to get in a rut and be afraid to make a changes to free your mind. Many of my daily personal needs and deeds were not being accomplished, because I got caugth up in the madness of the computer and trying to make money online. I look up and the clock and time has moved way past the time I had alot to be on , and the real life is waiting to be attended to. I think if you have no real responsibilities or you are on vacations or are between jobs, you can spend extra hours on the internet, but if you have obligations, especially financial, this won't cut it. I know some people have found a way to make hundreds of extra dollars a month, but at what price? I decided to do extra things when it is convinient for me to spare some time from my real life and stop wasting my time.

I dont really know if I am managing or wasting my time. Because I am just so busy to even notice. I hope I am not. I think you are right that we really need to get rid of the time wasters. Another problem is, how can we identify the time wasters? SOmetimes, it is difficult to identify if the thing does not make you productive and just wastes your time.

I know what you mean. its imprtant that we find that balance and eliminate the things which take up too much time and are really not worth doing in the first place! I see this place as a good way to spend time though...I like forums anyway and If im getting paid any amount to post on one..How can that be a bad thing?!?! ya dig? I hope so because this place rocks!
