At the Car Repair Shop
I devoted a chunk of this mid-morning waiting for a mechanic to fix my car's air conditioning. [When your air conditioner goes kaput in Phoenix in the summer, you don't procrastinate on getting it repaired.]
Fortunately, I brought along plenty of work and - Lord be praised - no one had a television on in the waiting room so I was able to make some serious progress on marketing items as well as a leadership workshop that I'm revising. I also finished reading a book about Apple.
It was time well spent as well as a reminder that a few projects should always be close at hand. Some of our best thinking takes place in unlikely places.
It may even be helped by the faint aroma of transmission fluid.
