This is a quote from one of my favorite movies, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I say this to an old friend of mine when he says that he doesn’t have time for something. If you think about all the things you do in your day, you’ll realize that you don’t do a lot, unless you write down the little things (using the bathroom, drinking water, etc) like a jackass.
We spend hours on a few things that are not really important to us, as in they don’t give you physical or emotional value. These “things” become habits, and I can’t name them for you because I’m not you. I don’t know whether scrolling through Instagram gives you value or not. I know that I don’t get any value from spending a good amount of time scrolling through YouTube in hopes of finding something worth watching. Video games give me value because I play them with my mum; this allows me to spend quality time with her.
I encourage you to acknowledge the things that you do which take a lot of your time, and give you no value. This way you’ll want to fill that time with one or a few things that give you value.
Film Recommendation: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
