Your Time is Too Valuable For Game of Thrones

And I can break down exactly how.

Let’s break it down.

Do you know how many hour-long episodes exist in the entire run of Game of Thrones? 73. The Sopranos had 86. Mad Men had 92!

How can that possibly be worth it?

Two objections are possible, here.

The most successful people spend their time similar to the way they spend their money: thoughtfully.

If you are starting out in your career, and want to be successful, I would encourage you, too, to become cheap with your time. Don’t go spending your time on just anything. Have an investment strategy for your time. If you value your time in a rational way, you’ll see that investing in a TV show that has 73 episodes, and which requires you to see every one to stay current, isn’t smart.
