Fall TV Schedule

September is here and the Fall TV Schedule is around the corner…

Do You Have a TV Schedule?

How do you decide what to watch? How do you decide how much to watch? Do you seek out new programs to watch since your favorites were cancelled last year? Do you watch TV from the time you get home to the time you go to bed? Do you even care what you watch as long as the TV is on? About 10 years ago I wanted to start being cognizant of the time I was spending watching TV. So I got out the Fall TV Guide and a spreadsheet on the computer and figured out which shows were important to me and did my best to keep it to about 1-2 hours a night, some nights there were none. Some people may say that is too much TV; while others will admit to watching much more. That really isn’t the point…

Are you doing what you want?

What Do You Want Your Life to Look Like?

It can be all too easy to come home from a day of work and sit in front of the TV until it is time to go to bed. Only to realize years later that what you wanted to accomplish in life hasn’t happened yet. But, at least you know what happened on such and such program…write down what you want your life to look like. What do you need to learn to make it happen? Sometimes the reason we are tired when we come home is that we don’t have anything exciting to look forward to. So make some plans, have something to do. What is your passion? Painting? Music? Creating a patent? Writing a Book?

Please do not tell me that your passion is sitting at home day after day, night after night watching TV. Is it? Sometimes TV and movies are OK to watch as a distraction from our own lives, but don’t let them replace living our own lives.
