  8. dada:

    not to fight for yourself

  9. Tunder:

    Not doing what you love.
    Selling out for something that will not be there later.

  10. Lazlo:

    There is no wasted life… every life is lived for some purpose. It is egotistical (and entirely human) to think that we can always know that exact purpose and be qualified to judge a life as “wasted”, even our own.

  11. Heath:

    Make a habit of blame everything but yourself for your problems. It makes you a powerless victim, makes you incredibly depressed, and seems to be addictive to some kinds of people.

  12. regrets!

    clinging to the past and letting go of what’s important the “now” …

    Answering questions on internet sites. Playing video games. Wasting time on the computer. Abusing substances.

  20. Alicia:

    To never love…
    To stop wondering…
    To stop caring…
    To stop learning…

    …and, in reference to “The Death of Ivan Illyich”…to live an average life. That is far worse than death.

  21. Alanna:

    An easy way to waste a life is to spend your life wishing you had a different life, or not being thankful for the life you have.

  22. Ravi:

    There is no such thing as wasted life. It is only a thought that thinks something it likes is useful and something that it hates is wasted.

  32. Claire:

    Drinking daily. I don’t know how I know people who seem perfectly content pissing away their money and health day after day in a crappy bar.

  33. Robin:

    Constantly thinking about what life you wish you had instead of living the one you’ve got. If you live the one you have, you will end up with the one you wish for.
