Wasting Time

Thing to work on: no more "down time" at work. I need to focus more when I am working... I need to stop changing gears, stop servicing requests that are not emergencies as if they are, and I have to stop doing non-work stuff during context changes. This is so that I can get more done in less time. Every time I check email, try to find a good recipe for ribs, or stop to get a drink I am trading time after work... I don't hate my job, I just have lots of non-job-related stuff I want to do and so I need to be more effective so work takes less time. I am the 5 trillionth person to feel this way. Please send my free toaster as soon as it is available.

Free time

I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of time to do new, interesting, educational, fun, creative, beneficent, philanthropic, and/or personally gratifying things created by the following conditions: Not being immortal (as far as I know) Not being filthy, stinkin' rich (yet) Having to eat, sleep, and obey other biological imperatives (the fact that I can use my own body parts to do this stuff is somewhat uplifting) Lack of direction from extra-terrestrial overlords (once a decade is NOT enough) The almost glacial pace of the space program (see above; I'd come to you if I could) Lack of telepathy (at least when other people are around) 24 hour day (so archaic)
