The irony of the modern world is that we have more tools and information at our disposal than ever before, but we’re getting less and less done. Sure, there’s a lot more activity, but it’s productivity that matters – advancing the cause, moving the ball down the proverbial field.
There are many reasons for this and possibly as many suggestions for solving the problem. We’re going to focus on making one small slice of time – odd-lot time – more productive.
Making Odd-Lot Time Productive
Examples of odd-lot time include
- those minutes between when the meeting was scheduled to start and when it actually starts,
- the small (or large) slice of time commuting, and
- that brief period on the plane when everyone else is still finding their seats.
