1 Serving no practical purpose or result.
2 archaic Indolent or idle.

Late 18th century: from Latin otiosus, from otium ‘leisure’.


Providing a definition of otiose provides a practical purpose. Reading the definition might be valuable, but illustrating otiose may not serve much purpose.


What’s the purpose?
What’s the point?
Answer these questions every day. Don’t always make the purpose large. Don’t always focus on the grand scheme of things. Small purposes and small goals have real value.
Try to avoid complicating things, too.
