How do you decide if something’s worth your time (or not)?
Ask yourself some questions.
- Will it make your think?
- Will it make you money?
- Will it make you emote (feel joy, sadness, etc.)?
- Will it be something you vividly remember in five years?
- Will it satisfy some primal need?
Each of these questions is a sufficient condition. So yes to any of them means it’s worth your time assuming one thing: It doesn’t hurt your relationships with your friends or family.
What does that mean?
Aimlessly scrolling social media, working too much, watching sports alone, etc. are probably not worth your time.
