Audit your time
  • Look at your peers. Is this who you plan to become? 
  • Look at your Facebook feed.
  • Look at the blogs you read. Are they helpful or click-baitey?
  • Look at the games you play and how much time they suck out of your life.
  • Look at the pointless arguments you get into.

These influences are acting on you, consciously and otherwise.
