The easiest person’s time to waste

Is your own.

Sometimes it becomes so second nature

We don’t realize how distractedly

We operate,

How slowly we reckon

With things that are no longer serving us.

From mindless scrolling

To second guessing our every move

To procrastination

We can waste our own time

In ways we would never accept

From someone else.

As work and education become

More self-directed

It becomes apparent that

The increased independence calls for

Learning to value and manage our own time

With as much thought and intention

As we would for hope from someone else.
