Time Waster

Time is a precious thing. It's one of the rare instance in life where everybody is equal. Everyone gets 24 hours per day, whether they are rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, lucky or unfortunate, etc.

But even knowing that, we still often do activities that are categorized as "time waster."
A time waster is, for me, an activity that is unimportant or not relate to our real goals.

Why do we still do such things, even we are fully aware that they "waste" our time?

Simple: Instant Pleasure.

We always choose to do something base on how much pain or pleasure it will give us.

Important activities give us pleasure when we achieve them.
Time waster(TW) activites also do the same, but they're so easy to achieve it's instant.
Also, they are set up in a way that is addictive. You'll keep coming back to do them.

The bad thing is that they give "fake" pleasure. True, we achieve something but it's unimportant, it's not what we actually want. That's what makes them dangerous.

Next post will talk about games as time wasters.
