Spare Time

I had written a nice post on Spare Time. But evidently during the recent Blogger outage, I lost it. Blogger had claimed they would restore the post but I guess not. So here's an attempt to recreate the post . . .

But in ten colorful bullets. =]
  • Spare time exists. Really.
  • No one works all the time. It's not expected. And I think it's impossible to work all the time.
  • Spare time is any time spent not being productive: Interweb browsing, facebooking, youtubing, relaxing at a park, watching a movie, other forms of procrastination,  etc. (If you can't see the yellow, highlight it.)
  • I sometimes get mad at people's excuse of not having time to have hang out. But I shouldn't be mad at them. What I find fun may not be fun to them and vice versa.
  • People spend their spare time differently.
  • It is only a problem when people are unintentionally wasting their spare time. I'm guilty of spending my spare time unintentionally – I'm on youtube all the time . . .
  • Think back to all the things you did today. Was what you did all productive? See, spare time exist. You can't deny it.
  • Imagine you could harvest that spare time into one time block. And then, intentionally spend it. You'd be a master of time!
  • So next time you think you don't have time for something, ask yourself: do you really not have time?
  • What I'm trying to say is that spare time exist. Take advantage of it and spend it intentionally. (This last bullet is in white . . . =])
