If you really want to get a good grasp of your time, do this twice: once on a work day, and again on your day off.

Marie Kondo is a huge advocate of taking a step back and determining if something actually makes you happy – or “sparks joy” – or if you ignore or use out of habit. Life is too short for wasting your time on things that don’t improve your mood.
