Diddle: v. to waste time and energy and money aimlessly and/or unproductively
Most of us diddle away much time and energy and money doing random or trivial and aimless things and not being very productive in the process.
Most of us are stuck with our good and bad habits and they change very little from day to day. Rather the exception is the human who tries hard to improve him or herself by excluding or greatly reducing the bad habits and replacing them with good ones.
You must first identify your bad habits as such and then fight the satisfaction which you are getting from them because bad habits frequently bring us some happiness into our lives or we would not be doing them so frequently in the first place.
Are you diddling your life away watching too much mindless TV, listening to mediocre music, viewing bad movies, going to restaurants with mediocre unhealthy food, drinking gambling, and taking drugs too much, and chatting incessantly with acquaintances rather than close friends on social media?
Instead you should be improving your useful knowledge and skills which will come in handy as you progress through life and you should be spending real time on that pursuit on a weekly if not daily schedule.
Some diddling is not necessarily bad because it can be a nice change of pace or fun time from a regimented boring routine called a bad job but too much diddling will guarantee that you will be stuck in a bad job longer than necessary. Don’t diddle your life away if there is much of it in your life because you are wasting valuable time, energy, and money doing so with little to show for it.
The urge to diddle is great and few are successful at fighting the urge and winning the battle, a battle which should last a lifetime.
