Wasting or Investing
To make every minute count, I was noticing MiYahoo! interface calling me with another name, so I blamed my daughter, who didn't remember when or how she could have change my profile to show his boyfriend's name; I thought she would eventually go back and fix it, but because I had a few minutes to escape, I decided to do it this morning.
I had a few minutes to escape (like now) when I prefer to divert my attention to this less important tasks, to take a break from the pressures of work or school; like therapy, the mind jumps to a different focus to return with a fresh or revitalized view.
While fixing my name I remembered using Rocky's name on a travel reservation, for which I did change my profile with the intention to go back and fix it afterwards; well, that purpose was forgotten, until now that I came back to the task; now I have to go back to my daughter and tell her about my mistake.
This is an example that logging our actions is more an investment than a waste of time, because it helps our memory, during the login process or in future searches; after all, we need those break anyhow.
