Have a Bulldog Attitude New Year

Here's the Doug Giles column I talked about this morning...

2. Cut The Fat. Fat will kill you. Fat is the excess baggage that is detrimental to your future progress. A good place to start is with the 50+ hours of TV you watch a week. Get this into your brain: Television is an E.I.R.: Electronic Income Reducer. TV has killed more dreams and visions than crack could ever hope to.

T.V. the great time bandit. How much time do you waste each week?

Isn't it funny how defensive people will get when you point out a simple little fact like what a waste TV is? Many people who watch 10 hours a week claim they don't watch much TV at all. Wake up people, that's 520 Hrs a year! That's 25% of a full time job! Think what you could do with that much extra money/time each year! For most people it will add up to over 26000 hours in a life time, well over a quarter of a million dollars in work!!! And for those people who watch more then 10 hrs/week, you're just too stupid to talk to. Hmmm, I wonder if we could find a class action law suit in this someplace and sue the media, much like "big" tobacco? ;-)

If I don't watch TV, I'm not necessarily going to spend that time on some sort of money making venture. I might use the time to go hiking or excercise.

Some people listen to talk radio 9 or 10 hours a day. Is that as bad as crack? Ridiculus. If people have dreams, nothing but their own lack of gumpshun stands in their way. Not TV, radio, video games, books, movies, what have you. Leisure is healthy. Lack of is not.

Jim in PA,

While your busy counting all your dollars (which I'm sure is very time consuming for you), I'm busy spending quality time with my wife and daughter, spending more money, so shallow people like you can count it.

Go ahead and spend 80-100 hours a week making all they money you can fathom pal. I guarantee you I make ten times what you make in half the time. It's not about the quantity of your work, it's the quality of the time you put into it and the return you get on that time. So if your happy with a low return, knock yourself out. My wife, daughter and I will be relaxing on the beach while your working your ass off for nothing.
