I recently read, Career Success without a Real Job by Ernie Zelinski.  It was lighthearted, fun, and full of inspiration on how to get what you want out of life.  One of the things that caught my eye was his “Top Ten” lists…and I share them with you here:

The Top 10 Worse Uses of Your Time

1) Doing what everyone else is doing
2) Complaining about your situation in life and arguing why you are a victim
3) Criticizing others, particularly those who are rich and successful
4) Watching TV
5) Gossiping and talking on the phone
6) Doing things that other people want you to do, but you don’t really want to do
7) Regretting the past and worrying about the future
8 ) Shopping and Buying things you can’t afford
9) Working at things you hate, or are not good at
10) Working at a lousy job

Conversely, he offers the Top 10 Best Uses of your Time:

1) Attempting different things that hardly anyone else is doing
2) Utilizing inspirational books and tapes to educated yourself about your “unreal” job or unconventional business
3) Developing intellectual property
4) Meditating and exercising
5) Laughing and playing and celebrating life with your friends
6) Doing things that relate to your overall purpose in life and that bring you career success without a real job
7) Enjoying the present moment for all it’s worth
8 ) Saving and investing your money in optimum ways
9) Doing things that you love and are good at
10) Working at a great “unreal” job

I would have to add to that: volunteering your time and energies to worthwhile organizations that support missions you believe in!
