While having some routine maintenance done on my car recently, I wasted an hour in the waiting room reading boring and outdated magazines. I resolved that next time, I'd use that time as an opportunity to pick up a useful new skill.
What helpful skills have you been able to learn in an hour or less?
I've seen similar questions
, but many of the suggestions take far longer than an hour or aren't practical for a waiting room. Something like learning the NATO phonetic alphabet is more what I have in mind, but I picked that up long ago.
