24 hours a day 8 hours for Rest, 16 remaining. 8 hours for Work, 8 remaining 1-2 hours Before/Afterwork and Commute, 6-7 remaining Add in meals ala Lunch and Dinner, figure half an hour each: 5-6 remaining If you follow any TV shows or are watching through a series subtract an average of two episodes per series from each day as well (for sake of convenience, I'm watching through Lost and Cowboy Bebop right now, that's 45 45 22 22 or there abouts), 2 and 1/3 hours so...2.66-3.66 remaining If you do any gaming, specifically MMO gaming subtract an average of two hours from your night again, leaving us with .66-1.66 hours remaining of time in the day. And that still doesn't factor in things like if you're commuting to a buddy's to hang out or the possibility of needing a second job to live, any number of factors, such as girlfriends/boyfriends/etc could decrease this amount of time to no less than an hour average each day. Yet even though that looks like a lot, there's never enough time. If you choose to dedicate yourself to something entirely you will lose so much time to that and that alone. We need to increase the day to like fourty some hours a day *this is based off my average day as a 20 something "single" male in the Tacoma metro area, some others who have more rural routes to/from work or who don't watch TV/listen to music/etc may have more time to dedicate to other activities than I.
