What must be considered on business trips?
Business trips are exciting, impulsive, full of new experiences - and sometimes annoying. Especially when flights, hotels, rental cars, meetings and presentations have to be organized from today to tomorrow.
- Which means of transport should you choose?
- What about internet reception at the hotel?
- Will I feel comfortable in the assigned room?
- Are there ways to relax?
Plan ahead of schedule
In spite of the hustle and bustle it is worth to plan ahead before the trip. For example with lifehacks. This is nothing else but the old-tried trick 17, which perhaps Grandma already knew, but eventually fell into oblivion.
Simple things with a big impact. For example, those who roll up their clothes not only save space in the suitcase, but also prevent wrinkles. Just as a classic tissue paper between the sensitive parts. After all, you should also look dapper for the business meeting.
Simple tricks with great effect
"Darn, I forgot it at home" or "these things would be very convenient": despite sophisticated preparation, you can also come on business trips in situations where such thoughts are in your head.
Lifehacks, ie creative tricks and tricks taken from life, can be remedied. But that's not all. They also awaken the spirit of improvisation and inspiration to make the most of what's available. Or even better: to use utensils completely differently than originally planned.
