Business travel quickly becomes bland, tiring, and uninspiring unless you make a conscious choice to break out of your routine. Don’t just do flybys; it’s much more rewarding to immerse yourself in your destination, even if you’re there for just a short time. Plan your stay to energize and inspire yourself. Adding local flavor in liberal doses in between meetings may lead you to all sorts of innovative new ways to approach your work. Remember always that connecting with people and striving to understand the culture is a surefire way to derive deeper understanding, grow your network, and spark potentially life-changing ideas.
