Around the Precision Avenue office, we enjoy exploring new ways to improve our productivity. We know that every minute of the day is valuable, so we want to achieve as much as we can. For most professionals, commuting is little more than wasted time. However, the examples of some super-commuters – those who travel over 180 miles to get to work – can offer some guidance:
- Plan Your Transit Time: Many highly productive professionals plan their workdays to improve energy and focus. Apply this same methodology to your travel time. Consider what you can accomplish while you are en route and create a schedule for what you will do.
- Align Travel Schedules: Sometimes several Precision Avenue associates need to travel at the same time. This can be an opportunity to find quality, focused time together that may not be possible in the office.
- Take Advantage of Face Time: Commuting teaches you the importance of face time. Whenever you are together as a team, use that chance to collaborate. The ability to interact in person makes communicating easier and more effective.
- Find the Ideal Balance: If you spend a significant amount of time commuting, make sure to balance that out by prioritizing relationships and self-care during your personal time. Don’t forget about the other parts of your life. They are important to being happy and productive.
These ideas from the experiences of super commuters can help you get more accomplished. Follow Precision Avenue on Twitter for more guidelines.
