I was commuting and it hit me - I've been commuting to work in some form or fashion for 16 years. In the Army and as a civilian. Short commutes (5 minutes) and long commutes (60 minutes or more depending on the day). Driving myself and public transportation. But one thing has remained constant throughout all these years - no matter the length of time or mode of transportation, I've always been productive and I never complained about the commute. No sense in complaining about something that everyone has to do. I figured I'd share my list of top things to do while commuting.
EMAIL/PREP FOR MEETINGS
Some days you work from home and have all the time in the world to answer emails. Other days you're
busy for an hour in back-to-back meetings and don't have time to look at your inbox or prepare notes. The commute is a great time to catch up on your correspondence.
Cons, how is music productive? Maybe you think you have a stressful job. Maybe you think your boss picks on you even when he doesn't. Throw on some Taylor Swift and help yourself calm down.
If you wrote a blog on each commute every day and just one at the office, shoot that would be 15 blogs per week! If you worked for a blog, the commute is prime time to blog. Heck, I came up with this blog in 5 minutes while on my commute.
P.S. The commute montage in Devil Wears Prada after Andréa has her transformation is an all time movie (and commute) scene
