It takes my between 40 and 90 minutes to get to work each day. How long depends on traffic, weather, time of day – the usual stuff. That’s 50 minutes variability; 100 minutes of randomness every single day.
100 minutes of randomness. Think about it. That’s 500 minutes each week, 8 hours solid that just go each and every week, just because of traffic and road conditions that might or might not even exist. Quantum traffic jams, eating away at my life, the uncounted and uncountable seconds being stolen from me by that idiot in the middle lane, the soft drizzle, the accident on the opposite lane that everyone else is stopping to gawp at.
I want those 8 hours back, and I will put them to Good Use, I promise.
