For most business executive, travel is essential, to make the most of it:
- Take paperwork and work-related reading. You can be productive while you are waiting in terminals or in transit.
- Use the interruption-free travel time to your advantage. Spend time thinking about your strategic challenges or planning new initiatives. I usually spend more time to actually plan my career growth based on current set of circumstances and progress/
- Make the most of your travel days. If you are flying to a city for a morning meeting, schedule afternoon meetings with customers, vendors, or other organizations you do business with. It will reduce the cost to operate (OPEX) for your company as well as give you more fulfillment.
