How to Maximize Your Commute in Startup Tech Companies

Your commute is a source of lost productivity, unless you learn to utilize it.

Do you ever find yourself wishing there were more hours in a day? Of course you do. As an entrepreneur, you’re constantly overloaded with tasks to do and responsibilities to manage, but there’s only so much time for you to spend.

That said, there are many areas of your life that are costing you countless hours of productivity—including your commute to and from the office. Fortunately, there are some strategies that can help you make the most of that commute:

  • First, consider biking to work. You might work up a sweat, but you’ll skip the need to have a separate workout—especially if you live far away. Think of it as a two-for-one special: a workout and commute at the same time.
  • Take public transport and work. Consider taking public transportation as an alternative. You won’t have to pay close attention to the road, which means you can catch up on emails or do other work while you wait to arrive at your destination.
  • Listen to podcasts. Start listening to entrepreneurial or business podcasts. You can learn a lot in the 30 to 60 minutes it probably takes you to get to work.
  • Listen to audiobooks. Alternatively, consider listening to audiobooks. Chances are, if it exists in print, there’s an available reading of it. As an entrepreneur, you should never stop reading or learning, and your commute is a perfect opportunity to do it.
  • Carpool with others. Carpool with other people, whether it’s your coworkers or a group of like-minded entrepreneurs. You’ll get the chance to network, and possibly even hold a meeting.
  • Hold conference calls. As long as you have a hands-free device, you can also hold a conference call on your way into work.

While these strategies can help you squeeze more productivity out of an otherwise wasted activity, make sure your priority remains on your safety. Never risk working if it means increasing the risk of an accident.
