How Executives Can Be More Efficient With Their Time
To be more effective with your time, start by looking at your daily time allocation.
A Harvard Research Study provided the following data on time allocation, where CEOs work, and mode of communication.
As technology makes video conferencing (Voom, GoToMeeting, RingCentral, Join.me, etc.) more common, it is insightful that the research reveals that 61% of executives find face-to-face meetings critical to their success. When you layer on the fact that most companies are global, it is a requirement that executives travel. And if you travel, you need to be efficient in your travel.
Here are a few tips on how to be more efficient with your time, especially when it comes to travel:
Less Time on the Ground. As an executive, you need to spend time outside your headquarters. You need to visit clients, other offices, and meet other executives. If you can spend less time on the ground, you will be more efficient. Most private charters use smaller airports, so you often don’t have to travel as far to get to one. There are thousands of small airport options, and most likely, you will find one that is convenient for you.
A Faster Trip. Private jets are usually designed to fly higher and go faster than commercial airliners, so you will get to your destination faster. Less time on the ground and a fast trip in the air makes for an extremely efficient trip and time saved.
Privacy of Trip Allows You to Get Work Done. It is easier to get work done when you are alone or with a few select companions. Plus, when you are working on confidential documents, or are having confidential conversations, you can be assured that it will stay confidential.
Combine Work and Personal Time: Consider a charter flight that allows you to do both work and personal activities on the same trip.
Flexibility: You have a lot more scheduling options when you charter a flight. From the airport you use to departure time, the flexibility you get with charting a flight is unmatched and will be more efficient with your time.
Time is your most valuable commodity; use it wisely. As the legendary jazz musician, Miles Davis wrote, “Time isn’t the main thing. It’s the only thing.”
