Every day, we have hidden pockets of time. These pockets exist when we have a gap between two tasks or commitments. These pockets are extremely undervalued and go unnoticed most of the time. These pockets are where side projects can be tackled, knowledge can be built, health can be prioritized.
Creating the pockets…
- Look at schedule night before. Identify hidden pockets and slot in tasks or activities
- Fill the pockets with something you’re passionate about so it doesn’t feel taxing
- Document your experience and how well you’re filling the pockets
- Keep self-awareness high to catch unnoticed pockets of time
In order to get the most out of your day, taking advantage of the hidden pockets becomes extremely important. We all have minutes and hours where more could be done, we just need to create and execute.
