What's with all the hate for TV, jeez. What if this IS how I like to spend time with my loved ones. It's one of the options, anyway. People shouldn't feel guilty for doing things like gaming, watching TV, etc. These things help you unwind. Have you ever been in a state of mind when you are too tired to work productively, but at the same time too anxious to relax because you think you are "wasting" time if you are not working? Many of us have. So maybe we should dial down the shaming. This obsession with "success" is kind of scary really.
Great advices otherwise, thanks for sharing!

Maybe. Yet it says "Kill your television" in the life advice section. I haven't watched the talk itself, so idk if the author actually said that, but it was this radical wording that put me off.

yes it's a verbatim quote. 🤷‍♂️ you don't have to take all of it as gospel
