Wastes of Time

Kristin Wong in Lifehacker writes on The Biggest Wastes Of Time We Regret When We Get Older. The four areas she flags up are: Not asking for help; Trying to make bad relationships work; Dwelling on your mistakes and shortcomings; and, Worrying too much about other people. As she notes:

We spend a lot of energy looking for shortcuts to save time, and sure, those shortcuts add up. But when I look back, my biggest time regrets aren’t spending too much time on Twitter or mismanaging my daily tasks. Those are bad habits, but there are bigger, more systematic time wasters that have really gotten in the way. Fixing these will free up a massive amount of time and energy.

The common theme across all four areas is that they have their roots in an attitude, which can easily be addressed. Though it requires being conscious of the problem, and an effort to change it – through which coaching can provide you with support to ensure that you are holding yourself account to do so.
