I wasted today. Which is very annoying as I am trying to be as productive as possible every single day. You know those days in which you have an alarm set for your 7am shift at work, you miss the alarm and have 5 missed calls and voicemails from work asking why it is 9.45am and you still aren’t there? That was my day today.
I woke up pretty fast. And I almost messed up again as I didn’t realise the 5th message was asking me to come in at 3pm instead, meaning a last minute dash to get in. I stayed until 11.30pm and successfully wasted what could have been an early finish and a free evening.
I was watching a Jordan Peterson lecture last night about creativity. He is currently touring Australia and there is a chance I may meet him through work, which is pretty cool. He stated in this lecture that anyone desiring to be creative needs to hold down a job to finance them as monetizing creativity is pretty damn hard. But this also means that time to be creative is halved. So making sure to use this free time is very important.
So a wasted day feels very shitty. Especially when it is self inflicted and we know we could have done better. And with every year flying by at a seemingly faster and faster rate I really value my free time. And I know that after this post I won’t get that ‘you’re on a 14 day streak on WordPress, keep it up!’ which is crappy. But what can you do.
Actually, a lot. For starters, wake up to that damn alarm call.
