Down Time

I'm currently sitting in an airport waiting for a replacement plane to land, 3 hours after we were to take off. Down time. We all know that life can often be boiled down to those "Waiting for Godot" moments. As such, I thought I'd take advantage of the free wi-fi and blog.

During my stint in Japan, there was always ample opportunity to read a book or magazine, to play DS games, to listen to tunes, or to text your friends. Public transportation gave an interesting luxury. I had 1 hour every week day to accomplish something. Whether it was catching up on zzz's at the back of the bus or studying Japanese, there was always an ample amount of down time.

Life is full of chances to capitalize on these moments. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Here's to taking the opportunity to utilize what would otherwise be an irritating experience and making it into productive time. Second by second, minute by minute. It all adds up.
