And you look at the clock hanging on the wall and be like, “Wait what? 3 hours passed??”.
Indeed information are abundant on Youtube but the problem is many videos are long. You spend 1/3 of your time working for your 9-5 job, another 1/3 you sleep, the rest of the 1/3 which is 8 hours, 3 hours for breakfast/lunch/dinner, 2 hours for accompanying your family/loved ones. You have about 1 hour to do YOUR thing.
If you are ambitious, hardworking, and want to improve yourself more by utilizing your precious/tiny amount of your free time, youtube is a great media. But If you want to finish all the content that interests you, either you’ll have to sleep less, sacrifice family time or other important things in your life.
So if there’s a way that you can get a quick picture about what the video is going to show you, you can then decide whether you want to spend time diving into the full video before watching.
