Many things are wasted in America. Food, energy, and money are some of the more obvious things we take for granted, but I think that time is the biggest waste that we, as Americans, contribute to everyday, along with many other countries. And this is not just about time spent in free time. This also includes time at jobs and school. Today in one of my classes, we spent twenty minutes taking notes and an hour and ten minutes talking about spring break and telling stories. To me, this is the stuff that deserves to be blogged, not forced into the ears of students. In my opinion, wasting time is one of the worst things you can do to yourself. Television, the internet, and just sitting there are some of the most common ways that people waste time. To be able to not waste time, one must have a purpose. The American History High School Dictionary defines purpose as, “The object toward which one strives or for which one exists.” For me, purpose is religion. I was put on this earth to tell other people about Jesus. But since many people are not Christians, they do not share this purpose. However, those people can still have a purpose, and should. “More men fail through lack of purpose than through lack of talent,” says Billy Sunday, and I agree. Having a purpose helps to cut out hours upon hours of wasted time. If having a purpose is one of the few things you need to stop wasting time, then why is wasted time such a big problem? The problem is in the solution; many people do not know what their purpose is, and have lots of trouble finding one. To find your purpose, try to think of something that is important to you. For many of you, this may be religion. And after observing people in this class, I think some of the purposes here
If you get out there and make use of your purpose.” and he is right. the internet. it had a purpose. Jean Lamarck is quoted as saying “Habits form a second nature. it is pretty simple. After that. People spend hours on facebook and texting friends. The first step to stop wasting time is to realize your purpose in life.” This did not happen for no reason. you will probably find yourself spending more time on your purpose. and every day. They spent their time wisely and got a lot done. the problem with wasting time is that many people lack the purpose needed to stop wasting time. and you can do the same. Once you know exactly what matters most to you. or aimlessly . you are going to waste time in your life. you should try to focus on your purpose in all of your actions. If Jesus and his disciples spent their whole time on earth fishing. whether you are stuck waiting in line. To make or break laws about immigration.make sure that the habits you form and the purpose you select are ones that you want to live by. or on the side of a road with a flat tire. and if it is important enough. you have a decision. This did not happen overnight. This is demonstrated in a quote by Sabine Gould. it may even be your purpose in life. Whatever drives a person is something that is important to them.might be to protect animals. or at least one of them.“Jesus picked up twelve men from the bottom ranks of business and forged them into an organization that conquered the world. A similar quote by Elbert Hubbard is “Cultivate only the habits that you are willing should master you. In conclusion. it is becoming easier and easier to waste time. But since it is difficult to not waste time. It is inevitable. it took time. or to waste your time. then it will change who you are. With television. and phones.to spend your time wisely. But the rest of your life is strictly yours. do you think they would have accomplished much? Probably not. stem cell research. or to get involved in politics. or DNA databases may be some specific examples.” This raises an important point.
There is also the timeless tragedy of the classic “sit there and do nothing.browsing the internet. Yes. I refuse to give in! No more will I waste days watching reruns of The Office! And neither should you. Call of Duty is fun. Thank you. . so stop wasting your life. but do you honestly get anything out of it besides the habit of mistaking shadows for Nazis? No.” However. There is way too much out there to do for you to be wasting time.
