‘Spinning wheels’

When you say that all you’re doing is spinning your wheels, what you mean is that you are wasting your time.

Example: I think I need to find another job. Something more challenging. I feel that I am just spinning my wheels here. * Lots of students spend their three years in college spinning their wheels.
