Because it is…man.
As a creative I find myself often looking around and doing nothing. It’s a habit I know I’m not alone in its doing, but it in our modern times, it leaves me feeling empty and guilty.
Like a man who has bathed in birthday cake whilst wearing a silk stockings. Ask not why this example has formulated on the page, as it is here now, and we now have to live with its image in our minds.
Anyway, wasting time is important because it is.
There, you can buy my book and move on with your day.
Still here? Okay then, why is wasting time important? It allows us to focus on the things that matter in our lives right now rather than constantly chasing after productivity that eventually leaves us feeling empty. It’s one thing to learn something new to improve yourself, but it is an entirely different thing if you’re constantly chasing after something to do, I.E. scrolling through your social media rather than going for a walk.
We need to waste time in order to allow our brains the ability to create new ideas and find solutions that matter. If you’re going to go for a run, go for a run, don’t try to multitask by listening to a podcast that will ultimately be lost in the energy of that moment.
I, for one, will be taking a nap.
