Why we’re sharing this:

There was a time in my life when I first started commuting to the office by train instead of by car.

In that very moment, my whole business changed. I suddenly had all this extra commuting time every day that I didn’t have before. You’ll be shocked what an extra hour or two of time every day can do for your business.

So when Bill Murphy Jr, in this article on Inc.com, says people working from home should make sure they don’t waste the “commute time” they’re saving, I totally understand why.

Here’s what he says:

“Reclaim your commuting time.

Commuting sucks, and one big advantage of working from home is that you no longer have to deal with it regularly. But it’s crucial to reclaim the time you used to devote to travel for something productive. For example, maybe use the first 30 minutes of your day to answer emails you didn’t get to the day before and the last half hour to set long-term strategic goals and specific objectives for the next day.”
