Hurry up and wait

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

Have you ever dropped someone off just to wait them to return?
… did you atleast have something to read?

Have you ever launched a long running task on your computer?
… did you atleast made yourself a sandwich?

Such are the times you know when it’s time to start looking at other tasks during the wait.

Sometimes you have to wait. It’s how you spend that time that makes the difference.

Craig has put together extensive list of things to work on while waiting.

  1. Plan for the Wait
  2. Always have materials on hand
  3. Tasks suited to the Wait
  4. Review your calendar and Todo list
  5. The power of 10 minutes not watching TV
  6. Return calls
  7. Your computer in your pocket
  8. Reading
  9. Rest – let your mind relax
