Dear Lovehacker, So I'll just be completely honest and upfront with you from the jump: I'm not exactly what you'd call a "smart" man. Not like special needs or anything, just, a little slow. Despite putting in a lot of effort during high school, certain topics just eluded my grasp, mostly maths and science courses.

That being said, I'm actually doing really well right now, despite being kinda dumb. I have a job that pays very well, I live in an apartment that's not a total crap-sack for the first time since I was 18 and living at home, and I have a very seriously cool partner. Her name is A, and she is the smartest, and most fiercely independent woman I've ever met, which for me is "The Dream" you know. However, I recently met A's friends which is where the problems started.


We spend a lot of energy looking for shortcuts to save time, and sure, those shortcuts add up. But when I look back, my biggest time regrets aren't spending too much time on Twitter or mismanaging my daily tasks. Those are bad habits, but there are bigger, more systematic time wasters that have really gotten in the way. Fixing these will free up a massive amount of time and energy.
