15 Time Wasting Habits You Must Get Rid Of

A popular quote says ―The devil does not come dressed in scary red cape and pointy horns. He comes as everything you have ever wished for.


Likewise, time-wasters do not come in like dramatic fireworks, but in any number of subtler ways. Some are as obvious as promising yourself to not spend more than five minutes on Facebook before a productive task, only to end up spending two hours, or taking a break only after the battery indicator of the phone starts blinking red. Some are as subtle as lazing in bed for what feels like only a few minutes when in reality, hours have passed by un-noticed. Others come in form of games, addictive TV programs, prolonged, irrelevant phone calls, interruptions from unexpected visitors, and so on.

Here is my list of 15 things you need to stop wasting your time on:

  • Being A People Pleaser
  • Busy-ness at Any Cost
  • Waiting for the Perfect Moment
  • Holding Grudges
  • Postponing Living
  • Shutting Off Your Emotions/Feelings
  • Being Pessimistic
  • Arguing and Always Wanting the Last Say
  • Watching Too Much TV
  • Waiting on Others (for something that was promised)
  • Self Deception
  • Judging Yourself by Other People‘s Success
  • Saying Yes to Everything
  • Wanting It All Now
  • Compulsive Self-Gratification
