Death to the T.V.!

December 3, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

To continue my “death to things that distract us from success” theme, here’s part of a post from the catalyzingleaders blog that I found:


The average American, according to a Nielsen study, watches 34 hours 39 minutes of TV a week! That is an astounding 75 days a year! In 10 years, you will have spent 2 years of your life watching TV if you are an average American viewer.

Imagine if you were to take one hour a day and spend it learning something new to move you closer to your dreams or goals. It wouldn’t be long before you leave behind the world of average and become part of the 1%. You could take a hobby that you love and become a resource for others pursuing similar interests and turn your hobby into a source of income. You could learn another language, get a college degree, write a book, or learn some new skills that will pave the way for promotions.


My Two Cents: Look, I’m not going to tell you to throw the old boob tube out the window, but I am going to recommend that you reevaluate your viewing habits. Time spent watching t.v. is (generally speaking) time that could be spent doing something more valuable – why not take that time and do something that will draw you closer to achieving your goals and dreams?
