People are bad at managing their free time. Part of the reason people like work is because it provides an order and structure to otherwise indecisive lives.
Once you remove the work and hit the weekend people rest. As soon as you have nothing to do nor have any obligation to be anywhere, the question becomes how to best fill in the free time.
Some people get bored and find entertainment in these calm moments. Others sit back and evaluate their present and their future, often to regret.
Take advantage of your free time to do stuff that matters. This doesn’t always mean doing more work or creating. It could be spending more time with the family and showing that you care.
Free time is precious. Make the best of it.
