I've been slowly letting go of mini obsessive time wasters. It's difficult. I have never shown signs of being OCD or addictive behavior. As much coffee as I enjoy daily, when I stop drinking it, I have no withdrawal symptoms. No headaches, no concentration issues, no decrease in alertness. I don't feel compelled to do anything in particular because I feel compelled.
But I recently have thought, perhaps, I could. There are a few Facebook games. Puzzle things...and I had a routine that started to take over 30 minutes each morning to go through. And I stopped. Because I couldn't answer truthfully that I was enjoying it. It had just become habit.
So, I started looking at what other things are just habits that aren't fulfilling and ultimately wasting my time. I have some work to do.
Brian showed me an application for sketching that looks more direct and immediately useable than Photoshop. Normally $100, the new Apple app store has it for $30. If I invest anything into this, I need to free up time to actually use it.
I really want to quit wasting so much time. I want to do things that make me feel creative and promote my talents. If it doesn't do that...it's on the out list!
