  • Today I went to watch a movie during lunchtime. I do that sometimes and I feel it not only gives me a break in the middle of the day, but it keeps me fully alive.

    The chosen movie today was A Late Quartet which has a superb cast and is so brilliantly executed that by the end of it I wanted to watch it again.

    On my way back to work it got me thinking about the fact that even when you use the same amount of time, how huge of a difference it makes depending on *how* you use it.

    Have you ever sat through 1-hour, or even worst, 2-hours (!!) of completely irrelevant and useless meetings that added absolutely no value to you, your project or even your company? Now imagine if that same time had been spent watching a movie, a concert, or a play. What a difference then!

    In the end, it's all about how we use our time. Me? I will keep having delicious lunchtime movie sessions :)
