Time mismanagement comes to a head

I’ve been losing my life on the internet the last couple weeks. I’ll stop at my computer to “quickly” see what’s going on in the world, and then pull myself away hours later. This has literally destroyed any/all free time I’ve had—and it’s not just ye olde blog that has suffered as a result.

Now that I’ve realized that this is going on, I can surf deliberately and minimize the time I spend checking out various websites and RSS feeds… but I have to actively work at not getting sucked in, and that’s harder than it should be.

The sad thing is that there’s really nothing that interesting out there, and it’s not like I’m walking away from these sessions with any significantly expanded base of knowledge… I’m just walking away with less of my life left to live. It’s a totally bum deal.

  1. It’s probably for the best that you don’t actively use facebook. With respect to time-wasting, if the internet is crude oil then facebook is rocket fuel.

    Poking around MySpace (back in the day, when Facebook hadn’t clearly won that battle) was addictive enough without actually being a part of the community. I imagine Facebook, these days, is even worse.
