You know deep inside you that the secret to living happier lives to to spend the vast majority of your time doing things that make you happy.
You know it, yet you don't do it.
You may not quite get that the other secret is cutting out all the nonsense, the garbage and the wasted time out of your life.
It's not easy. Most of us get wrapped up in the endless drama that other people dwell on and try to force us to deal with.
The news doesn't help trying to get us to be outraged or in fear about the latest issue.
You have to focus on you, your life, what you can accomplish and what you will avoid to have any hope of a good life.
Happier lives are created by selfishly living your life how you want to live it.
I don't know what you hate. But I certainly know what I do.
I hate wasting time. The days slipping by are a maddening reminder that my life is short and getting shorter. So much to do, so little time. So many things to accomplish, and not enough time to do them. So many places to go and people to meet.
You get that. I know you do. Your are frustrated like I am. You are upset and irritated and frustrated when you are wasting time.
It isn't about getting rid of clutter, being more productive or doing things faster or multitasking or delegating either. Yes, you have to do those things. That is part of life. Your life is only as good as your lack of clutter, being productive, finding ways to do things faster, getting good at multitasking and delegating to others. Those things are huge and important.
What I really mean is cutting out wasting time.
This is massive, because it means you have to cut out giant blocks in your life.
Yes, you need to leave your wife if she is the cause of your wasting time.
Your life will not be a happy one if you have a bad wife. It cannot be.
You are wasting time because you get caught up in these bad situations and you think you have no way out. You think that you have to obey the government, your religion, your boss, your parents and your wife.
A happier man does very little obeying. Just enough to stay out of serious trouble, Just enough so that life does not get out of control. Just enough to know that he finds obeying an irritating annoyance that he wants to eliminate from his life.
Your days are numbered. Start living as if you won't live forever.
