Stolen Moments

An hour before work, during lunch, on the commute home.

When and where do you steal moments in the day to do things you enjoy, whether that’s reading a book or writing one.

Time is precious. Stealing moments allows you to take control of your own time and do something that matters. You dictate the speed and the momentum of your progress.

Sitting in a cubicle and doing someone else’s work pays the bills but it doesn’t contribute to your long-term happiness. Read more about the tug of war between art and commerce in Hugh MacLeod’s “Sex and Cash Theory.”

However, if you’re using stolen moments to waste time – social networking or TV – you might be better off letting others decide what you should do with your day.
