You just picked up your phone to scroll through social media for a few minutes. Here’s a question for you, was it worth it? You just looked at your YouTube analytics again for the third time in an hour. I ask again was it worth it?
You just bought a pair of shoes you’ll probably wear 5 times in your entire life. I’ll ask you AGAIN. Was it worth it? Was it worth the time you could have spent doing the things you were meant to be doing? Was it worth the time you could have spent improving yourself or spending a few more precious moments with a loved one you’ve since lost?
I don’t ask these questions to be morbid or cruel but I ask them in order to make a point. We all waste time doing things that don’t provide as much value. In those wasted times we all could be doing something that moves the needle forward in our life pursuits.
We want to be closer with our parents, make new friends or build that business from the ground up but we consistently waste time on meaningless time sucks. I’m not saying every minute of every day needs to be productive towards these end goals as everyone needs time to be a vegetable and recover.
On the other side of things though when you get into a YouTube rabbit hole on 2:30 PM on a Tuesday then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Those micro breaks you give yourself usually involve you consuming content which actually leads to more brain fog rather than giving you a break.
Once I found out that consuming content like this led to me being less focused when I got back to working my mindset shifted. Rather than being distracted by nonsense, I would ask myself the question, “Is it worth it?”.
That short question really put me in an intentional mindset. It is pretty easy to not pay attention to how you spend your time but when you ask yourself a simple but easy question like “Is it worth it?” you at least give yourself a chance to live intentionally.
Start asking yourself some hard-hitting questions and your entire outlook on life can change.
Have an awesome week!
