So, my question (as you can tell), is open ended... I'm 22 and I'm trying to learn how to usefully allocate my time according the hobbies/interests that are worth my time and trying to avoid wasting my time on things that do not enhance or actually play into my life (SCII is still addicting... haha) Realistically, I like to read, run, cook, and misc. others. I know I can apply all these disciplines to my every-day life. On the other hand, one example my side interests is IOS/swift programming. I like the challenge but also the creativity portion to this. However, I am a food industry management major and do not have a real use for this skill. I assume that learning a new skills is what I enjoy, but I go back and fourth regarding the true utility of this programming skill in my life... I'm either motivated or not. So, since I've had trouble deciding on an answer myself, i thought i would ask the community. how have you guys decided what hobbies/interests are worth your time (or not)? how do you spend your time on hobbies/interests that do not influence your daily lives? how do you keep them up?
