From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DO NOT TRUST WIKIPEDIA. What's there is a mixture of some useful information with a good deal of useless garble, inaccuracy, and blunder.
— Robert M. Martin, Epistemology: A Beginner's Guide, p 163 [1]

Time management ideas[edit]

Many articles are wrong and incomplete. It's not really a problem with Wikipedia, but more a reflection of biases and partisanship that are found everywhere else. On the bright side:

  • It's neither your fault or your problem that many articles are wrong or incomplete. It will take many lifetimes to fix them all, and fixing articles will not affect your life in the slightest.
  • Many people think differently than you do. You can't fix that, and you want to spend time with your friends and family, not with angry strangers on Wikipedia.
  • Even if an article on Wikipedia is wrong or incomplete, the World will probably ride it out somehow, as it always had.

A few ideas for what you can do right now instead of editing Wikipedia.

  • Spend more time with family
  • Message friends, see maybe they want to do something
  • Focus more energy on the work projects
  • Home improvements
  • Exercise
  • Go out and enjoy the sunshine
  • Have a beer Exercise
  • Sleep
  • Cook
  • Read a book or something, I don't know
