I’ve always been one to arrive early and make sure I’ve not cut myself to close when it comes to the next task/meeting/event. That has the unintended consequence of my not starting anything if I don’t think I’ll have time. So I waste downtime that could otherwise be used for writing, reading, or doing other worthwhile things in the space between.
I need to make a conscious effort to squeeze more in.
How about you? Ever feel this way, and if so, what do/did you do?
