Living Away from Home

"I do a fair bit of traveling for my job. After my first several
business trips, I discovered that when I am on the road it is important to treat
myself well. A night spent alone in a nice hotel, with room service and a good
movie or book can be a real blessing. An extended stay, however, can really
start to bring on homesickness. So, here are my tips for taking your ‘lifestyle’
on the road:

Stay connected – Time stands still for no one, and I don’t want to miss
important events and deadlines. Organizing and planning allow me to easily keep
in touch with what’s going on at home when I am away. My favorite is a blank
notebook, but you can choose from engagement calendars, phonebooks, notebooks,
or electronic devices/PDAs. All the important details stay with you and make it
easy to stay in touch….
…Portable creativity – Any seasoned traveler spends a great deal of time
waiting around in an airport or between meetings. My portable creativity "kit"
includes a moleskine journal, markers, and pens. I can take it out and sketch my
surroundings; plan an event; doodle or dream journal. Making the wait in the
airport – well, bearable…."
