    What are some of your hobbies and what have you ever achieved with them?

    they say the more hobbies you have the more successful you are, but is that really true or does your success merely allow you more hobbies?

    which is the actual catalyst to your achievement, do you achieve because you are talented or are you talented because you succeed?

    this is the grand question:
    -Are hobbies a waste of time?
    -Should you rather spend that time studying/working and watching tv?
    -Do your friends and family really get any say in whether hobbies are good for you?
    -and what is a hobby to you?

    No.
    No.
    No.
    This question doesn't even make sense.

    A better question would be are things you do in your freetime a waste of time? And the answer is no.

    Way too much work without rest and something to keep your mind away from it will lead to serious issues. Maybe that's what hobbies are for?

    Nope.

    Something you do in your freetime and something you enjoy. Also as Zombie said the question really makes no sense.

    I find this whole thing confusing. What do you live and work and achieve success for besides supporting hobbies? I mean yes there are responsibilities like being financial support for dependents, but working solely to fulfill responsibilities is typical for an ant or a bee in a hive, not for a human being.

    Ultimately, the reason anyone tries to be "successful" is to support activities they want to do for its own sake. Like hobbies.

    that is a very cool answer considering my father believes the only purpose for life is work, and I'm not exaggerating... this is what he said

    Oh, I believe it. My parents were similar. My father was worried that he'd be incredibly bored after retiring, since he wouldn't have as much work to do. Fortunately I got him to pick up reading at least.

    lol that's bad

    I think our parents work so much that they forget the reason they started working in the first place. your point is valid and I wish I could rep you for it, but since the new hive I have been un-able to rep from my phone.

    one last question for you. do you think hobbies make you a better smarter person?

    they say there are no such things as super powers but... poppy seeds defiantly give you super strength
