A running tap.
Fridge door left open.
Lights left on.
Maybe not teenagers but most adults would scurry to address these potential wastages.
Yet the one thing we have which is truly limited is metaphorically flushed down the toilet every day.
Switching tasks frequently.
Meetings for meetings sake.
Rewriting lists (rather than doing)
Disrespecting time like this is as bad as watching an ATM machine spit out your cash and standing back as the notes fly away in the wind.
