One of the most cumbersome aspects of everyday working life is driving. Whether it’s being sat in traffic or missing out on an important email whilst you’re in the car, driving can have a negative impact on your productivity at work. Here are five great ways of increasing productivity while driving:
1 – Use Smart Phone Sat-Nav
Even the best car infotainment systems struggle to compete with your smartphone. Unless you have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, ditch your car Sat-Nav and use a free system like Waze or Google Maps. With automatic re-routing and unrivaled traffic updates, Waze and Google Maps will help get you back to the office as quickly as possible.
2 – Hire a Chauffeur in your own Car
If you spend 8 hours per week on the road, that’s equivalent to an entire working day worth of travel. With a chauffeur, you can work as effectively in the car as you could in the office – thereby reducing the impact driving has on your working week. Over the course of a year, this could mean more deals, happier customers, or even increased motivation when you get back to the office.
3 – Don’t Listen to Music, Listen to Podcasts
Everyone loves listening to music in the car, but it’s unlikely that music will boost your productivity at work. With so many free business podcasts available, long car journeys are the perfect time to hear insights from business leaders around the world. If you’re looking for inspiration, the team at Veho are big fans of the James Altucher Show!
4 – Conduct your Meetings Remotely
We’re all guilty of booking face-to-face meetings because we feel like we have to. Instead, try using Google Meet or Skype when you can to reduce the time you spend on the road. We’ve actually found that we can devote more time to a client when we don’t have to leave to head back to the office.
