The biggest single time wasted in the world of work with other people who are going no where with their lives and want company.  They see you standing there, “Hey, come on.  Come with me and let’s waste our lives together.”  You get up close to them and the boss looks over there.  They see that person who they know is a time waster and they see you standing next to them and they know that birds of a feather flock together and so that person sabotages your career as well.  Because if you’re associated with people with no future they assume you have no future as well.  Does anybody know what I’m talking about here?  One of the first things you time wasters.
