After publishing the article titled “10 signs that shows you are wasting your life and what you should do”, I believe I should write this article to help you spend time on the best things. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is spent doing things that we think suits us best. We sometimes fail to recognize those that are worth doing and those that are not.
Wasting time on worthless acts will only yield nothing but doing time-worthy things with our days will make life more interesting and rewarding. As a result, I have decided to publish this article in order to guide you on how to make maximum use of your time. To cut the long story short, what are those things that are worth doing with your time in life? See them below:
THINGS YOU SHOULD SPEND TIME DOING IN LIFE
Books in general are sources of knowledge. Knowledge is the true organ of sight and helps to open our mind. Life-changing tips and ideas will always come to you by reading books.
The passion for reading and desire to study has drastically diminished in most people which is not supposed to be so. Reading everyday won’t hurt you but will only help to improve yourself.
In my article on “12 powerful hints on how to be outstanding among others” , I mentioned reading as a major tool to achieve this. Always remember that “Readers are Leaders”. In order to help you boost your reading effectiveness, I have provided some articles you might want to read.

2. LEARNING FROM MISTAKES
No man is born free from mistakes, we are all bound to make mistakes. If you are not making mistakes, you are not progressing in life. However, repeating the same mistake is the true definition of stupidity.
We must know how to learn from mistakes including those made by us and those made by people around us.
Learning from mistakes will make us better. So, we should spend our time learning how to admit them, correct them and learn from them.
The more we write, the more we know how to. Spending a lot of time writing is not a waste of time if you write the right thing with it. You can write an article, essay or letter to someone.
You can also make a list of your past achievements or what you’ll like to achieve in future. This will not only help to develop your writing skill but also boost your grammar accuracy and word usage.
Moreover, writing skills is one of the best skills you should improve that can fetch you job easily.
4. EXERCISE YOUR BODY
Exercises have been proven to be health-friendly practices. They will not only improve the body physical condition but also increase the mental capacity. This is why it is a practice that is worth doing and you should not be disappointed or ashamed of yourself taking daily routine exercises.
5. EXERCISE YOUR MIND
Another worthwhile thing to do is to exercise your mind. Sleeping, resting and meditating are the best ways to exercise the mind. When the mind is not prepared and set, the body is useless. This is why you need to exercise your mind.
6. BE HONEST
Honesty is another important thing to ensure in order to live a worthwhile life. Saying the truth no matter the circumstance is most time something people find very difficult to do. A person who is not disciplined cannot cultivate this habit. You’ve once fallen in a situation where you thought lying was the only thing that could save you. But remember, the fastest way to lose our good character is to lose our honesty. Honesty will never break you, it will only make you!.
7. HELP OTHERS
Some people out there need your help, you are not too young to help others. You might be thinking “What if I don’t have money to help them?”. Well, I’m happy to inform you that helping others is not limited to finances alone.
You can help motivate someone, you can advise someone, you can help a friend/junior in their academic work. You don’t know which one of them might turn up to help you tomorrow.
Try to develop selflessness attitude and make positive impacts in the lives of people around you. Your influence on their lives will not be forgotten.
8. MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY
If you are living a happy life and people around you are not feeling happiness in their own lives, then you are not living a life worth living.
Put a smile on as many people as you can today and you will be proud of doing it. It can be by helping them, by the way you listen to them while talking or by the way you speak with them. Whatever the case, make someone smile today, it is worth doing!.
9. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS
You should know that you are responsible for your actions and admit it. Don’t blame others for what you have done wrong because nobody is capable of forcing you to do what you don’t want to do.
Stop finding faults in other people for your actions, find a remedy for what you have done.
10. LIVE TO DEVELOP YOURSELF
If you are not improving, then you are not alive. The real measure of growth is the measure of your development socially, emotionally, academically, physically, spiritually and economically.
Do things that will help you to improve in all areas of your life. Make sure you learn something new everyday before getting back to bed at night.
11. TRY NEW THINGS
Don’t be afraid of doing things you haven’t done before especially because you don’t want to make mistakes. Don’t just sit down idle and expect miracles to happen. An idle man is devil’s workshop. Heaven help those who help themselves.
12. PURSUE YOUR DREAM
We all have our ambitions. Life is worth living when we pursue our dreams. Act today, take a step further in the pursuit of your dream. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step.
We have to be grateful for everything that is happening in our lives. Pray to God Almighty, give thanks to him, ask for forgiveness and request for everything you need from him.
14. LEARN A NEW SKILL
You can decide to learn a new skill, be it how to drive, how to play a musical instrument, how to use the computer or how to prepare a meal. The time which will be spent on learning these skills is not wasted.
