A lot of my job involves attending training. In the past few years I have been to over 400 hours of training. The last year and a half, not much of the training has been new. Lots of repeated ideas, lots of the same material, same videos, same books, etc.

This week I had one day of great new training. It got me excited about the season of summer training. Today is the opposite. It is dull. It is boring. It is a waste of my time. I hate having my time wasted.

So the question is can a wasted day be salvaged. I can sit through 39 more power point slides. I can get a good lunch. I can enjoy the time with the teachers that are sitting through the training with me. Or I could leave the training. Will it get better after lunch? Should I be forced to sit through this? I have tons of work I could be doing at the office. I have tons of work I am taking with me next week on my trip. So there are multiple reasons I am angry about having my time wasted. 

What happens in other professions? What do you do if your time is being wasted?
