That one quote in david's 2nd book said it best "every morning I wake up and am torn between saving or savoring/enjoying the world. That describes my situation correctly. In my workoholic goal-oriented mind, I'm thinking maximum time to productiveness and the only "fun" time is with my wife and future kids and in the future when there's money, to spent time w/ friends playing paintball to get that nice social family/friends balance.
I'm "trying" to cut out 100% of my personal fun time such as computer games, guitar, music, movies, tv, etc. but am finding it difficult. I beleive this is mostly an impulsive thing as I don't think before doing I just think "instant gratification! yea!" instead of work & productivity. And becuase I have spent most of my years as a kid/teen (I'm 19 now) doing mostly fun things. How do I stop this impulsive pleasures? Some might suggest to schedule a time for personal fun such as 1 hour a day/7hrs a week etc. or something but I do not want to have any personal fun becuase my goals are too important and maximum time must be devoted to it.
Any tips on effectively cutting the personal fun out?
