Just say NO to PAT

Sometimes I go through phases where I spend a lot of time on the computer. Not doing anything special; playing mind numbing games (Bejeweled or Spider Solitaire), reading blog entries. drifting from one link to the next or shopping.

You know how it is. If you're reading this blog, I must assume you are no stranger to the Internet. We all know how one quick Google (what did we do before Google anyway!?!?) can turn into a half hour or more. Let's be honest. If I added it all up I bet I spend several hours a day on the computer. Some of it legitimate work, but a lot is PAT.

What is PAT you might ask? Pissing Away Time, that's what it is (PAT sounds much more civilized, doesn't it?). And it's a crazy concept, not dissimilar to the phrase, "killing time." Why would we want to kill time? Time is our most precious commodity.

So today I am starting something new. I am just going to say NO to PAT. I am going to have to monitor myself as parents do with kids and TV time or video games. I may have to put a timer on my desk when I read email.

But first I need to check on this eBay auction I am watching........baby steps, baby steps.....
