#1 Tip for Executive Time Management: Use an Executive Car Service
Do you often find yourself wishing you could squeeze more hours into each work day? It’s easy: just change the way you deal with business travel! Think about it: when you drive yourself back and forth to appointments, the office, or the airport, you have to battle traffic, negotiate unfamiliar roads, search for parking spots, and hope you arrive on time. While you’re white-knuckling it out there on the roads, you’re probably tempted to check on all of the emails piling up in your inbox (bad idea). Chances are your phone is also ringing off the hook the whole time you’re behind the wheel. It’s likely that your ride to and from your destination is anything but relaxing.
“Windshield time” takes up an awful lot of each work day. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American spends more than 50 minutes each day traveling to and from work, and that’s a conservative estimate. Depending on where you live and how many business appointments you have, you may actually be spending much more than 50 minutes each day in your own car. Luckily, there is a way to reclaim that time and make it work for you. Regularly using an executive car service for just one week could give you at least an extra 4-5 hours of work time!
So what does that look like? Imagine this scenario: you’ve decided to try out an executive car service. A professional-looking sedan pulls up to your door and your driver, who already has your route mapped out, greets you by name. You sink into the comfortable back seat, open your laptop, get out your phone, pull some folders from your briefcase, and get to work. You start by catching up on some of those emails. You’re able to take a few phone calls and you thoroughly review the agenda for the meeting you’re headed to.
Because your driver already knew about this morning’s big construction project on the freeway, he was able to take a secondary route and avoid a traffic jam. But you haven’t even noticed, because you’re busy jotting down some great points to add to your sales presentation. In fact, you’ve been able to get so much done during your ride in that you’ve even been able to go online and see what some of your competitors have been up to this week. By the time you look up from the back seat, your driver has already arrived at your destination and parked the car. You even have a few minutes to hit the gourmet coffee shop around the corner that the driver has recommended for you. Although it’s only the day’s first meeting, using your executive car service to get you there gave you some valuable extra time to get things done.
An executive car service can make this scenario a reality for all of your business travel and will help you to:
- Arrive at your appointments on time, prepared, and relaxed
- Avoid the dangers and risks of distracted driving
- Accomplish important tasks during your commute
- Add more hours to your work day
That’s time, and money, well spent, indeed.
