If my mind wanders was all the hours of "listening" a waste of time? Man listening can be so damn boring when you don't understand the full meaning :( I listen for hours and I have to catch myself constantly to listen am I wasting my time or it still matters regardless?
Have you made progress? That's the best way to know. But it's not necessarily binary. Don't fall into the trap of worrying about perfect conditions. It's not a choice between 100% efficiency and 0% efficiency. Inefficient listening can still help with things like intonation, pronunciation, Sprachgefühl, perhaps endings etc. Don't dwell on the past :)
