I remember all of the time I have wasted doing useless things. I read about Oliver Sacks, who has terminal cancer. He writes that no longer will he watch the new or worry about world events, because with the limited time he has left he wants to focus on productive work. I, too, have limited time – but it is too abstracted as I am not actually sick or unwell. And so I waste time.
