A waste of time

Jon Dron, The Landing, Sept 08, 2015

I am loathe to produce a chart similar to Jon Dron's because I know what it would show: approximately ten hours a day of 'wasted' time, a couple of hours spent in productive labour, and the rest in leisure, transportation, and the like. But I am the sort of person who takes a very long time to warm up and who produces rapidly. My talk the other day, for example, followed a full day of 'wasted' time, took ten minutes in the middle of the night to create the key points, and an hour or two in the morning to put together. But without the 'wasted time' the talk could not exist.
