It can seem like there is never enough time to do what we need to do. But what I find, is that much of my time is spent doing useless and unproductive things, such as watching YouTube video’s, constantly checking my email, or even just roaming around the house.
Now watching YouTube videos or checking my email may not be bad things, but I sometimes spend way too much time doing so. Watching a couple YouTube videos is ok, but just sitting at the computer screen, watching video’s 24/7 is not good. Maybe limit your time to 1 hour a day, or maybe even 1/2 hour. Having a reasonable time limit on watching videos or other things can really help. Another waste of time is me constantly checking my email. If I limit a certain time to check my email, I could save so much of my concentration. Now I might spend the same amount of time checking my email if I limit it to certain times in a day, but what I find is that you change your amount of productivity. When I start to focus on your work and then my chat rings, it gets really hard to focus afterwards. I lose a lot of your time where I actually concentrate.
In conclusion, I think that it is important that we focus on how much time we spend on certain things. Now the things that I mentioned might not be the problems that you have, scheduling your time applies to almost everything, not only with YouTube videos and Email. Now it is OK to occasionally indulge in watching funny cat videos, but for the most part, I am better off doing many other things with my time.
