I learned this lesson in a time management course at HP decades ago, but was reminded last year when taking care of my dad’s funeral and estate details.  I was too busy doing useful stuff to read about the Kardashians.  It’s nice to see someone writing about this.

I spend less time reading about the latest warehouse fire in Oakland, politician lies, and other things that don’t mean anything to my life, than I used to.  Frees up time, our most precious commodity.
