Episode 16 - Alive Time

In this episode of the Improvement Podcast, Sean & Dave talk about something that we all experience, but never seem to mention - Dead Time.  Time that we all have, but don't use productively.  Waiting for something else, like a doctors appointment.  Have you ever said the phrase 'I'm just killing time'? Let's never use it again.  We have renamed the term to 'Alive Time'.  Let's use the time to the best of our ability and get shit done.
