Business professionals tend to think that a travel day is a time suck and that they can’t get anything done by virtue of being trapped at
an airport waiting for planes (for example). The most they can do is stay in touch with their office via their mobile device. I challenge that notion.
Yesterday was a travel day for me. During the 2 hours I spent sitting at Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport, I wrote my weekly blog post, put the final touches on a workshop presentation for tonight and wrote and scheduled my twice-per-month e-newsletter.
I knew that I was going to have a lot of dead time at the airport today, so I shored up all of my writing projects. Those new to social media are concerned with the amount of time it takes to be effectively engaged. If you use your time wisely, it’s a breeze.
What do you do while waiting at the airport? What do you do while waiting for your oil to be changed or for your tires to be rotated? How could you better utilize this time to advance your business?
