We believe that commuting can be a productive use of time. We look forward to our Precision Avenue, Inc. commutes as productive and enjoyable activities that help us be more effective in our careers and life in general. These are a few of the practices we embrace to make this idealistic notion a reality.
First, we use our back and forth to keep up with current events. Listening to the news can get a little depressing though, so we use this Precision Avenue, Inc. strategy sparingly. However, we believe it’s important to be informed about what’s going on in the world, and the latest headlines can make great networking ice breakers.
More frequently we’ll listen to podcasts. There is an almost infinite variety of topics to choose from, so there’s bound to be something for every taste. While these are great for gaining industry knowledge and general business information, we also listen to them for personal edification and entertainment as well.
Another use for commuting is to learn another language. Speaking a second (or third, or more!) language provides a variety of benefits that include enhanced thinking and creativity skills along with increased professional opportunities. Plus, it looks great on a résumé.
With the proper perspective, a commute can become a valuable part of the workday.
