By Car or By Train: How to Make the Most of Commutes

By Car or By Train: How to Make the Most of Commutes

Productivity is a common discussion in our Mammoth Marketing meetings. We consistently seek new ways to optimize our 24 hours a day. Commuting is often viewed as non-productive time by many people. However, when we spend generally thirty minutes to an hour or more a day in transit, it adds up. Therefore, we’ve been exploring options to make the most of our daily commutes. Here are some ideas that work, whether we’re doing the driving or letting someone else take the wheel:

• By Car: Of course, our Mammoth Marketing values include safety first, so we have to consider options that are not distracting for drivers. Fortunately, there are plenty. For people who are avid learners, podcasts and audiobooks are excellent opportunities to pick up new knowledge while on the road. Consider TED Talks or even some of the Rosetta Stone programs. Imagine learning to speak a foreign language while en route to work. For those who like to be organized, hands-free apps make it easier to list a daily agenda.

• By Public Transport: For those who take the subway, train, or bus to work, there are plenty more options because distractions are less of a concern. In our Mammoth Marketing office, we’ve noted that transit time is a great opportunity to catch up on emails and social media, read industry journals or self-help books, or even the daily news.
