How do you ever manage to balance both? It’s a juggling act, but hopefully with some good tips we can get our work done and enjoy our vacation.
Tip 1: Plan your time: Organizing your time will help you so much in the long run. If you know that you will be on a plane or stuck in an airport for thirty minutes here and there, then why not take your laptop with you and get some work done. It’s a great way to maximize your time and get the most done that you possibly can. Or perhaps you are traveling with the little ones. Naptime is a great time to get some work done while they get ready for round two of vacation. If you are visiting family, then this is a great time to ask for an hour or two to get some work done while they watch the kids. Chances are you’ll have plenty of volunteers for your work break. Just be mindful of when you will have down time and opportunities to work.
Tip 2: Plan your Wi-Fi: If you know when you’ll have Wi-Fi to get some work done then that will help greatly. If you won’t have Wi-Fi, then it might be a good time to invest in a travel card so you can get Wi-Fi anywhere. After all you are not promised Wi-Fi anywhere, and you’re lucky if you find it. If you know where you will have it, then plan your work around that. Nothing is more frustrating than to wait on a slow connection when you thought you would have better service. Then you become grumpy, and no one wants to sit by you on the plane.
