Anything that takes more time than the value it generates is a time thief, because there ought to be commensurate value delivered to you for every time investment. Time thieves can also be things that constantly break down and thus, steal your time. For instance, if you have a car that always breaks down, it may be taking more time than the value it is generating. It may be wiser to take a taxi until you can sort it out, or pay someone to do that work for you.
You also need to look into some of your routines and habits that may be time thieves. These may be routine meetings, programs, shopping trips, etc,. If you cannot totally eliminate them because you gain some kind of satisfaction or benefit from doing them, you may consider how to get these things done by utilizing lesser time or better methods, or getting other people to do the job.
In eliminating time thieves, you also need to watch out for encroachers. Encroachers refer to things or persons that encroach into time allocated for high priority activities. Anything that does not fit into a particular slot in your priority list and attempts to move into that slot is an encroacher.
In all, you need to eliminate all forms of laziness or procrastination, because procrastination, they say, is the greatest thief of time. Today is an opportunity to achieve something, and tomorrow is another opportunity to achieve something more. Stop planning to do tomorrow what you can do today. If you will succeed, do not deal with tomorrow, deal with today.
