This week I had a crazy week of traveling. From my home near Gent to Antwerp to Amsterdam. After two days in Amsterdam, I left for Madrid where -after one meeting- traveled on to Frankfurt. After a day of work there I flew back to Amsterdam with a stopover in Madrid. Back to Gent for a short weekend with the family before traveling to Athens from Brussels via Zürich. With approximately 15 hours on a plane, of which 5 hours in business class, I had plenty of onboard getting-things-done time for myself. And then, somewhere on a flight from Madrid to Amsterdam in Seat 28D next to a restless sleeping Spanish woman I realized – I actually get more work done in Economy.
On getting work done
Much of my work
I need my focussed time alone behind my computer to get my stuff done. It is one of the reasons why I tend to wake up every day between 04h00 and 06h00 – to have the alone time behind my computer.
Getting work done in Business Class
I was lucky enough to be on a wide-body Dreamliner from LATAM this week in Business Class. A great plane, great service. I loved it. But I didn’t get much work done.
Before take off I got my drink and nibbles.
After the fasten seatbelts sign was turned off, we got our hot towels and thing
Getting work done in Economy
Nothing to be distracted.
Same flight time, two presentations and a blog post finished.
