Wasting time?

Wasting time is a concept that changes depending on the context.

Which of these do you agree with?

You're wasting time if:
- every minute of practice isn't planned out.
- every minute of practice isn't used to practice.
- you don't have a goal for each section of a practice.
- you talk a lot during practice.
- not everyone is involved during the majority of practice.

One person's "being creative" is another person's "wasting time".  One person's "stifling" is another person's "productive."

Sometimes it's good to be very focused and have a goal but sometimes it's good to allow for exploration and open-ended outcomes.  Different people are going to have different opinions on these,  and sometimes the best thing you can do is realize and respect that.
