Future Challenge – What Would I Be Better Off Without?

As part of my retirement theme,  I’m offering a weekly Thursday “Future Challenge” to get people of all ages thinking in general about their futures and/or retirement. (I apologize, I’m still a little behind this week, as I’m finally getting over being sick.) Each challenge will follow a post of my own on the same general topic. Hopefully we’ll start some interesting discussions!

If you’d like to share what you think, or post on it, that’s great – and I’d love it if you’d share those thoughts in a post or comment (tag posts: TRS Future Challenge and link to this post) so others can also see them.

If you choose not to share them, that’s fine too – but with any luck, you’ll still gain some insight on where you’re headed (or would like to be), and how you can get the most out of your own journey.

Challenge #5:

We all have weaknesses – vanity, food, drink, or other passions that we allow to take us over from time to time. Are they worth the time and resources we give them? How hard would it be to give them up? Would it be easier if we knew what they might cost us?

Looking ahead, what “addiction” do you think you might be better off without (or with less) in the long run? What would you replace it with? (Ideas: unhealthy food? Time spent on things like video games or other things that take away from family?)

For my own take on this, see my post Tempting Fate – The Tipping Points of Our Health.

    I can’t think of anything off hand, except maybe the Internet, but without it, I couldn’t blog. 🙂

    Well, I would definitely be better off without chocolate; I am totally addicted. I haven’t figured out what to replace it with yet. In the past, I have used licorice tea as a replacement; I should probably go back to that. The other time-taker for me is the computer. I have to figure out how to get a blog post together in less than a couple hours (15 – 20 minutes would be better).
