Take Advantage of “Found Time”

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

As I was sitting in the airport coming back from a business trip last weekend, I had some downtime while waiting for the plane to arrive. I realized I had some “found time” available you know, those small pockets of time we FIND each day …. between phone calls, while we’re on hold waiting, while we’re waiting on a doctor, the inevitable flight delay, the traffic back up, the time spent waiting for someone to show up at a meeting or appointment, etc. (the list goes on….).

Found time should be viewed as a GIFT — extra (unplanned) time given to us when SOMETHING can be done.

How will YOU take advantage of your found time today? Use that time to….

  1. Make a phone call,

  2. Respond to an email,

  3. Read a blog or magazine article (I keep reading material AND podcasts/audios on my iPad and iPhone for that very purpose),

  4. Write a quick thank you note to someone,

  5. Review your goals,

  6. Review your task list (and perhaps find something you can do right NOW).

Make it a point today to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR FOUND TIME.

Best to you,
