295 |365 Productive Travel

Hamilton Road SignSince implementing GTD last year, I have learnt to make my travel more effective and productive. The key to effective travel is actually spending time planning and prepping days or sometimes weeks out.
Some things I do to improve my travel time are

  • Have reading with me, if I get downtime, it’s a great fall back and I catch up while flying.
  • Have pod casts downloaded for travel in the car.
  • Book solid days of meetings in advance.
  • Prepare agendas and key outcomes of meetings while travelling.

And then sometimes, travel time just needs to be used to process and make decisions.
The result of effective planning was two very productive days of travel into four of our branches.
