WASTE OF TIME
The concept „Waste of Time“ is primarily associated with negative connotations. Of all the things that can be wasted, time is the one most valuable thing we all have been given. However, with this work I want to try to restate time-wasting as something positive and to make suggestions on a different handling of individual time.
Catchwords like “Time Management” or “Time Wealth” and a multitude of guidebooks on this subject demonstrate that many people long for a different handling of their time. In our work lives we are exposed to a constant acceleration of processes; e-mails and mobile phones have changed the speed of communication significantly. All this leads to an increased desire for deceleration and more spare time dedicated to personal interests.
Fashion changes ever more rapidly, the latest electronic gadget comes with a use-by date that seems dangerously close already, the fear of being outdated is our constant companion. This causes a feeling of instability and a demand for timeless values. The achievement-oriented society has no space for true desires and the wishes for more idleness.
Against aimless activism! Faineance as a productive status!
