A few months ago, I started doing grocery delivery. Today I got a message saying that I had saved 30 hours this year – a considerable chunk of time.


Add the extra time I’m saving by working out at home instead of the 20 minutes drive each way to the gym.


And then there are the 12 hours I save each month by using TextExpander – a magical piece of software.


With all this extra time, I’ve been working on two books on climate change – one for adults and one for kids.


It’s always satisfying to create something “out of thin air.” But these books were created using the crumbs of newfound time I might’ve Netflixed away if I hadn’t been careful.
