Tips for Coping with Life on the Road

Let’s not kid ourselves: life on the road isn’t easy. It’s hard to be away from family, familiarity, and certainly from our own beds. But business often demands us to get out of the office and onto the road. Karen Goodwin wants to help, and does so in this article from Executive Travel. According to Goodwin, the worst thing to do is depend on hotel WiFi: make sure you have your own, personal means to communicate with home base (both work and family). Next, make sure you’re managing your time and planning all your big moves. Furthermore, make sure you have a routine of what you bring on trips and how you use the items you bring. By doing this, you’ll make travel and productivity a habit, and a successful one at that. Finally, make sure you take care of creature comforts for yourself (rarely does great business come after a horrible night’s sleep), and get to know the people who help you along in your travels—more than likely the person who takes your bags will also be the person who gives you the best tips on where to eat or avoid.
