A) Timewasters are realenemies of success. Theysimplydivert our attentionfromaccomplishing our goals and take us to activitiesthat are of less or no importance in life. In addition, "timewasters" could be people, events or habitsthatlead to the oppositepathawayfrom our goals. The ultimatestartingpoint in settingthingsstraight and removing the timewasters in life is to identifythem. We need to sit down and analyze the activitieswhichtake our time.

If we knowwhat we want to do, what we don't want to do becomesclear, and our focus is strengthened.
Moreover, when we think of people we spendtimewith, we are sure to noticethatsomehave a morepositiveimpact on our successwhileothershave a negative one. It is important to be able to distinguishthemespeciallywithregard to our schedule. While we do not advocate for everyone to throwawayrelationships, it is good to knowthatmanytimeshelping a friend who is emotionallydisturbed can wait for dinnertime and does not have to interrupt our writingthatproposal or beatingthatdeadline. Finally, do the same to our habits. List all the habits and addictionsthattake any amount of our time. Then, take a littletime to straightenthem out in linewiththeirimportance and urgency. Depending on our analysis, killthosethat are detrimental to our goals in life.
