Whether you are in business for yourself, or you are an employee, you will be beset by time-wasters. Of the many people in the world, a good proportion fall into this category. Time-wasters drain your energy, contribute no value to your life, and upset your serenity. They are everywhere. To get the most out of your life, it’s not enough to take positive action to do good things. You also need to take action to avoid negative things. Avoiding something bad is just as productive as doing something good. We often forget this fact. We devote a great deal of attention to the one, and hardly any attention to the other.
