A nap is always welcome, but there are far betters ways you can use your time on an airplane productively. We have the pleasure of working with many business owners and entrepreneurs everyday thanks to our Nashville airport transportation service, and we’ve learned so much from each client. While few are in the same industry, they’re all knowledgeable and wise when it comes to using their time wisely, and we’ve learned a few tips and tricks along the way. If you’re an entrepreneur looking to use your idle time productively while flying, take these into consideration.
Meet New People
Every flight is a chance to network and meet new people. Smile and introduce yourself to the person next to you. We love when our clients spend time speaking with us, and so do many others. It’s a great chance to meet people you might find helpful in the future. If nothing else, you’ll share an interesting conversation with a new friend.
Clean Your Electronics
We aren’t suggesting you pack your 409 in your carry-on, especially since it doesn’t meet TSA guidelines. Take this time to sit on your phone, iPad, or laptop and delete old photos, organize your emails into appropriate folders, and delete old files and notes. This allows you to clear up space, but it also allows you to feel more productive and organized when you’re back at work.
Respond to Emails
The biggest problem many entrepreneurs face throughout the day is responding to email after email. They pile up quickly, and there’s never enough time in the day to respond. Use your time on your flight to respond to emails. Buy Wi-Fi on the plane to help, or save your responses as drafts and send them all in one of our Nashville car service rides to your hotel while our professional, experienced chauffeurs are responsible for your safety.
Evaluate Your Goals
You have many, and now is a good time to evaluate them. Have you been able to accomplish any? Do you have a list of smaller goals you’d like to use to break down bigger goals to make them more accessible and achievable? Now is a good time to go over those, cross of things you’ve accomplished, add more, and remind yourself why you work so hard.
No matter what you do as an entrepreneur, you need content. Your business depends on your ability to sit down and write to keep things interesting. Whether it’s a content calendar for your business blog for the month, social media content, or even blog posts you want to share with readers, now is the time to sit down and organize those pieces, write them, and gather your thoughts effortlessly.
Your trip is one with ample downtime thanks to your flights, your waits, and the drive to and from the airport. The good news is none of it is your responsibility, so you can have the opportunity to enjoy this time productively and efficiently. Use this time to build your brand, work hard, and accomplish some goals.
