I think it's also useful to think of the "secondary costs" involved with how you spend your time. For example, maybe for every evening of TV watched, it "costs" you in the sense that you start to want what you see advertised: things you wouldn't have wanted otherwise. Or because you sit on the couch while you watch, you're more accustomed to a sedentary lifestyle than if you had spent that night bowling. It's kind of like the interest on your debt - the little accumulations that weight down your original investment of time.

It can be useful to consider your use of time as a reflection of the things that are important to you. If your actions don't really reflect your priortites (watching tv instead of writing that novel) then it can be helpful to refocus. Although I'm one to talk, because I'm totally distracted by the internet.
