I like the way this guy* thinks:
We have become slaves to time. “Wasting time” is looked up as being detrimental, lazy, uneconomical.
But wasting time for one person, is thought provoking or inspirational for another. It can be in these moments of tranquility that our clearest and most profound thoughts occur. “Wasting time” is actually good for us, and contrary to popular belief, can actually improve productivity at work.
Almost 80% of the population suffer from some form of stress, with the primary cause being over working. Ordinary tasks such as making a cup of tea again and again are common, subconscious tools to relieve this stress.
How can we re-establish the joy of “wasting time”, and delight in the repetitive acts, such as tea making, we perform unnoticed each day?
