Procrastination Enablers – TV Part 2

Today we discuss the enabler’s family members – Cable TV, show recorders and video games.

I know what you are going to say. “I need some distraction from work and family”. My answer is simple: save it for the weekend.

We all have free time and you can do with that time whatever you want. What I am asking you to recognize is that all the time you spend in front of the TV is time you are not dedicating to other activities, including time with yourself. That is why they call it the “boob tube”. That is not a reference to your anatomy.

So what can you do? I’m no expert. I am trying to cut my TV time to less than 2 hours a day. What I do is I tape all the shows I like. Then, I only watch what I want. And yes, some times, I do watch some commercials….because they are funny. I also turn the television set off to avoid the distraction all together.

In the end, what you do with your time is up to you. Just keep in mind, you want time with yourself. The same way you make time for your friends, you can have some time to read, play, learn and grow.
