SPI #42 – Time Wasters – TV & News

Pat went to a couple retreat for soon to be married couples and learned two things you should stop/limit to strengthen your relationship.

  • watching TV
  • consuming news

… both seem to be time wasting for couples. Pat extended this insights to business.

True, instead of starring into your television set or reading a newspaper you could work. You could also limit your sleeping hours and your spare time. Leisure is overrated anyway. … sorry, but if your relationship is trouble because of TV and news your problem lies much deeper …

Pats retreat happened in a secluded monastery. They had no TV nor Internet. Some participants asked the group leader for news from the outside world. … if you feel cut off from the world within a single weekend, there is definitely something wrong … I doubt stopping watching TV or the news will help … come one, it was a “couple retreat for soon to be married couples” not a “retreat for soon to be divorced ones” …

… back to the story. Their group leader went home and printed some news sites from the Internet … that Hugh Heffner was cheated on … sorry again, that’s not news, that’s gossip …

And now the conclusion: If you watch TV to avoid your work … limit your TV time. If you equal news and gossip and can’t be without … limit that, too … otherwise, you are fine …
