Wasted Time

Wasted Time

I waste time. We all do.

It started long back.

Back when I was in school, I wasted time reading tons of storybooks, watching entire cricket test matches, and mindless TV shows.

In college, I wasted time on friends who’d turn up late (or were ‘no shows’), or for long queues to move, or dull and boring lectures to end.

Later, as an Assistant Professor, I wasted time in administrators’ waiting rooms, or complying with a 8-to-2 routine – even when there was no work to do.

As a professional, I wasted time because surgeries got cancelled or postponed, patients showed up late for appointments, or traffic slowed to a crawl.

These days, I waste time playing chess online, watching movies, or reading blogs.

Looking back, here’s the difference.

For most of my life, I’ve wasted time because of other people – or things they wanted or expected me to do.

When I was much younger (and now, when I’m much wiser), I only waste time doing what I want to.
