How to Work While Travelling
- April 26, 2016
Working while travelling is something long-term travellers are aware of. Your business might require you to travel for work regularly, and you might be wondering if those trips will interfere with the work you have to do.
There are a few steps you can take to ensure you can work while on the plan or on the car. Today’s technology allows you to be connected even when far away. Taking your computer with your work is a good way of ensuring that you remain on top of your tasks.
Most work can be done using modern technology like phones or tablets, but that won’t mean anything if you don’t remember to pack them. You can easily work anywhere, and most cafes and restaurants have Wi-Fi.
You will know in advance where you are travelling to on business, and even if your trip is scheduled close to your travelling date, you will be able to research where you are staying. Your hotel will most likely have Wi-Fi, which will enable you to get more work done.
Write on the Plane
Most apps work offline, and you can prepare ahead for the lack of internet connection to compile the work you would like to get done. It’s important to keep in mind that no internet also means no distractions, which allows you to be more productive.
Long trips on planes might become boring quickly. If you are travelling for several hours, you can take advantage of not being connected to the internet to get a lot of writing done. You can organise your calendar and your tasks, and type emails for when internet is available again.
Love Your Job
Seeing new countries and cities invites sightseeing, even if on business travel. Loving your job and being invested in the company you work for will help prevent your mind from wondering to the local cuisine and museums.
A way of combining work and sightseeing is to go to local attractions, especially ones that have a higher view of the city, and enjoy local dishes for lunch or have a delicious snack while working on your computer. The Wi-Fi will enable you to connect with your co-workers and coordinate your work.
Calls During Car Rides
While travelling for business, you might get a few hours of car rides. Having done most of your writing on the plane, you can take advantage of this time to make phone calls. A chauffeur will guarantee that you arrive on time, so you don’t have to worry about work distracting you.
