It's such a weird mindset that this guy seems to have. "If I'm doing any of this normal human stuff, I'm not making optimal use of my time, and that is a source of pain!" I mean, sometimes it's nice to be a little inefficient. For example, I don't have a car (and I can't afford/won't pay for Uber). So whenever I go somewhere, either I have to get a ride with a friend, or I have to ride the bus and/or walk. And it can actually be fun to just be riding through town on the bus, watching things pass by; or to walk down a street, all by myself. It's a chance to listen to a lot of podcasts, or to sing along with my music (only when I'm reasonably sure I'm alone). Maybe I could stand to do things a bit more efficiently sometimes, but I don't mind the transit time all that much, really.
But I guess that's why I'm a poor-ass grad student, rather than a
human robot Silicon Valley thought leader who gives people diarrhea for a living.
