The Art of Frequent Business Travel

The Art of Frequent Business Travel

Being a frequent business traveler is a balancing act filled with incredible rewards but unique challenge. Sometimes you can’t wait to get out there to tackle the latest and greatest opportunity and other times the journey itself challenges every inch of patience you have. Delayed flights, car rental reservations lost in the system, no WIFI in the public WIFI zone, and the universal frustration of your smartphone letting you know that you only have 5% battery life left. But at the end of day, the job is done, you’ve got some new stories to tell, and let’s face it, it beats sitting at the same desk around the same people for 40 hours a week.

Frequent travelers are in a class of their own. They’ve mastered the art of getting from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible all while getting work done along the way. It’s an incredible skill when you stop to think about it and the only way to acquire it is in the trenches. They scoff at the novice traveler trying to figure out where to go for his connecting flight, “get out of my way you over packed rookie!” It brings to mind a New York City native pushing their way right through lost tourists trying to make sense of it all.

Traveling is a system best suited for the well-traveled and the prepared. Like any system, many of its moving parts are dependent on each other. One chink in the armor and boom, potential disaster! Have you ever thought the types of skills you have developed? Time management is the first skill that comes to mind. How do you make the most out of every minute and turn challenges into opportunities? Flight delayed? No time to fret, time to get the iPad out and shoot off those emails you were planning to send while you were waiting to depart. Now that’s done, which pushes up the proposal you were planning to review when you landed to takeoff. Before you know it that seemingly annoying delay has bought you more time and in the end you can watch the football game in the hotel tonight because you crossed every item off your to-do list with time to spare. Nice!

So, how do you do it? How do you keep it all together in the face of all the little things that could go wrong? If you have some golden frequent travels tips please do share!
