Obsess over leveraging edge time. Schedule things you can do during downtime.

#762 51. Obsess over leveraging edge time. Schedule things you can do during downtime.
[1] Scripture
[2] Obsess over leveraging edge time. Your biggest downtimes during the workday may be when you drive to work, when you drive home, and when you’re in airports. So focus really hard on how to use that time. Schedule calls for your drive to work. At the airport, use Pocket, a browser plug-in that downloads articles. Loading up 10 articles ahead of time ensures you’ll have plenty to read–plenty you want to read–while you’re waiting in the security line.
Look at your day. Identify the downtimes. Then schedule things you can do during that time. Call it edge time–because it really can build a productive edge.

How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
