One of my biggest pet peeves in my adult live is wasting time. I don't like to spend my free time doing things that don't seem to benefit me in some way.
I watch videos and play videogames, but I usually spend 5 hours before I get into any of that just going down a rabbit hole of research. I research topics that interest me, or that contribute to my skills in some part of film. I can't spend two hours being idle before I get antsy and want to do or make something. That is why a lot of my time spent gaming is streamed now. That way I can feel like I am making something and not just playing a game.
As for missing opportunities, I feel like that is another form of wasting time that I only realized recently. At RTX this year I decided on day two that if I passed any celebrities that I recognized, I would say hey. That ended up being a very rewarding goal, and I said hey, and had conversations with way more people than I ever thought possible.
I don't know how to end this post. I want to say more, but I also don't... So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I am going to say yes to opportunity more now.
