We don’t go so far as to say that commuting is our favorite part of the day, but we’ve certainly found some ways to make that time on the road productive. Here are some Infinite Promotional Solutions tips to reclaim your commute time:
• Look Back and Plan Ahead: As busy professionals, we know how difficult it can be to keep up with daily responsibilities, let alone reflect on progress. Whether we drive or take public transportation, commuting provides the perfect opportunity to consider where we’ve been and where we’re going.
• Stay Current on Data and Trends: Podcasts are Infinite Promotional Solutions favorites for this task, but there are other mobile learning options as well. We could listen to lectures for online classes, or even set our mobile devices up with text-to-voice apps that read product reports and articles to us.
• Network: For those of us who take a bus or train, we try to meet at least one or two new people each week. Drivers can make phone calls to follow up with new contacts, or keep in touch with established network members.
While some of the greatest minds of our time are coming up with solutions to make the modern commute more pleasant (check out Elon Musk’s Boring Company, for example), we have learned to make the most of this daily requirement.
