I have played more video games in the past week than I probably have in the past year, easily.
I have walked my dog more in the last few weeks than I did in the last month.
I have watched more local news about my community, about those around me than I ever have (perhaps since I was a child).
You don’t need to be doing something productive 24/7 to “get ahead”, you can do something that wastes an insurmountable amount of time if it gives you the break you need to get back in the game.
That’s what breaks are for, so make sure you’re taking one.
