10 Ways You Waste Your Own Time

Avoiding conflict

While we do waste time in avoidable conflict with drama-bringing friends, sometimes we waste time by avoiding necessary conflict. Some conflict, such as that with family or colleagues, is unavoidable. These are people you really cannot remove from your life. That one stepparent or sibling or coworker you have an issue with – they’re not going anywhere. So if there is beef that is getting in the way of things running smoothly and is taking up space in your head, you are wasting your time. What happens when you avoid an argument that must take place? You just have it in your head. It distracts you and slows you down while you try to do other things. It holds you back until you just get on with it.
