Turn Off the Television

By Brandon Eley

I have been incredibly busy lately, and yet I have still found time to watch an occasional television show or movie.

Granted, I still watch far less television than the average person, but the other day I thought about how I could better spend that 3-5 hours a week I typically spend watching TV.

Below is just a few ideas I came up with:


    Write an article or two for my blog (or the Tribune)
    Work on a website redesign I’ve been putting off for months
    Work on a presentation I’m giving next week
    Read a book

I could easily come up with dozens of things I could do rather than watching television: some work and some personal. Most would probably be better for me in the long run.

I’ve decided next time I think about turning on the television, I’m going to do one of the things above instead.

How many hours a week do you watch television?

What could you be doing instead to grow your business, become more healthy, or relax?
