If you’re anything like many of our MAG-City Marketing team members, you have a regular commute to and from work each day. While you may get your exercise in by biking to work, listening to music or the news, there are also things you can do to turn that ride into productive time that helps you meet your specific professional objectives.
If you live somewhere that has public transportation, you can use your commute time to get a head start on your emails or outline your task list for the day. Showing up at work organized and prepared to tackle a major project is a great way to make the most of your office hours. You can also use the time to read the newest business books or insightful articles that give you understanding about your industry or leadership practices.
MAG-City Marketing associates driven to network have discovered that commuting is a great time to build or strengthen connections. While sitting in the car you can call people for brief chats to sync up on industry news or plan get-togethers.
While having a long commute might not be ideal, it’s time that you can turn to good use with a little thought and preparation. If you’d like more tips on career advancement and using your commute well, be sure to visit MAG-City Marketing on Facebook.
