Future Self with Pete Cohen

Jun 28, 2022

“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” -  Charles Darwin

Before I get into the main topic for this episode, I want to inform you that on Tuesday next week, July 5, 2022, this podcast, The Future Self with Pete Cohen podcast, will be celebrating its 6th year.  It has been 6 years since I started podcasting in 2016 and now has more than 420 episodes released once, sometimes twice a month.

I have several amazing things lined up for this wonderful event:
First, on July 5, 2022, entrepreneur Rob Moore will be our honored guest and he is going to talk about some very astounding and powerful concepts.

Second, 1 lucky listener will get 6 months of 1on1 coaching with me for free.

And third, everyone who joins or sends an entry will have free access to my Confidence Masterclass to help you be the best you can be.

So how do you join or send an entry?

Easy, all you need to do is tune in to our podcast on Tuesday next week, July 5, 2022. Then subscribe and follow us. Next, take a screenshot and send the picture through any of the platforms you use, whether LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or email.  My team and I will then gather all the entries from all our platforms, and put them into a raffle to draw out the main winner.

Now let us not waste any more time, no pun intended, and go to our main topic for today, all about wasting time.


✅ Time is a measure of where you are and is a valuable commodity.

✅ Wasting time means you are throwing away opportunities in life.

✅ We do not realize time is limited and that we have an incredible opportunity with time to do things.

✅ It is what you do with the time that you have that matters.

✅ Stop wasting time and do these instead:

  • Be aware of how you are wasting time and how it is preventing you from having the future you want
  • Take responsibility and stop blaming yourself
  • Be curious. Know the person you could become
  • Understand that time is limited
  • Realize everything you do is a vote for the person you are going to be
  • The choices you make can take you to a place you may or may not want to go to.
  • Stop being a hero in the beginning
