Although I only live 25 miles away from the office, unfortunately it averages between 45 minutes to an hour and 10 minutes to drive in.
For years I used to just listen to the radio or music on the way to and from work when one day it dawned on me, that’s 2 hours a day or 10 hours a week of dead time. That is like an extra working day!
I decided to find some things that I could do to safely fill this massive void of over 480 hours a year of dead time and this is what seems to work well for me:
- Conference calls
- Keeping in touch with friends in different time zones
- Dictating notes and ideas to yourself
