Around the Primus Management Group workplace, we use a few helpful strategies to stay focused and productive no matter how busy we are or what challenges we face. One of our favorite methods is to make good use of our commute time.
The rides to and from Primus Management Group are perfect for getting inspired, for instance. We listen to audiobooks, TED Talks, and podcasts on all sorts of topics. We’re especially partial to success stories, learning from them and applying the lessons to our own pursuits.
Sometimes we use voice and dictation apps to check and respond to messages. Emails that require just a few sentences are easy to get out of the way when we’re on the go. Tackling them allows us to focus more on high-impact tasks once we’re at our desks.
Similarly, it’s helpful to evaluate to-do lists and reflect on accomplishments when we commute. Whether we do so mentally or use our devices, we prioritize our responsibilities for the coming day. By thinking about everything we’ve achieved already, we draw ample motivation to continue moving forward.
These techniques not only help us maintain high performance, they make our commutes more enjoyable. Next time you get behind the wheel or board the train, tap into your favorite source of inspiration, sift through your messages, assess your to-do list, and evaluate your progress.
