A time for giving…

We recently attended a workshop on time matters given by Youssef Khoury, and if I were to comment on one major point it would be time ‘wasted’ vs. time ‘spent’.

What determines the difference?

Is playing a video game with a member of your family or the one you love time wasted? But it’s still a video game. Your time could have been better spent discussing more ‘intellectual’ matters, but it isn’t as clear-cut.

What matters is attitude.

Do you feel guilty?
Do you feel irritated?

Or are you happy to spend time with someone even if you’re just watching a movie together?

Either way, what I got out of the workshop is that if you schedule having fun as part of your daily diet, then you can have this fun and more. All in a day’s work!

So even Facebook can be time well-spent if you actively decide on making time for it 🙂

At this rate, all my time isn’t wasted!
