Increase Your Morning Productivity by Starting the Night Before

Justin Levy

However, if I am going to be at one of our offices or am getting ready to travel then I pack my work and fitness gear the night before. If you’re like me, how you start your day usually provides the foundation for how the rest of your day will go. Sure, things inevitably come up which can steer the day in a different direction. To help with this, I recommend  starting the night before.

Use Less Folders to Increase Your Email Productivity

Justin Levy

Travel:  I use TripIt to manage all of my travel but I save all travel confirmations to this folder so that I can easily access them if there is an issue with TripIt, need a receipt for expense reports or any other travel related emails. Over the years I have experimented with a number of different email folder strategies in an effort to increase my email productivity.

Post-Holiday Fitness Series: Workout Plan

Justin Levy

Over the years I have tested with 2 workouts per day and find those effective – lifting in the morning and doing cardio in the evening however with upcoming travel and a demanding work schedule, I structured the cardio into my morning routine. With another holiday season now over, many of us are getting settled back into our normal routines and looking to develop new routines.

How I Am Finding Value Using Foursquare

Justin Levy

There are check-ins at other gyms, as well, from when I traveled back to Connecticut for Thanksgiving or to places such as Las Vegas or San Diego for conferences. Checking in while traveling to events has proven useful because it helps me to connect with others who are also attending. It occurred to me that checking in at the gym has become part of my morning routine. Events. Fitness.

Understanding Daily Routines to Increase Productivity

Justin Levy

If Sasha and Darren understood it, then I wanted to as well. A few of the areas that I noted, that I previously was not accounting for included: Travel time to and from the gym: I had my morning workout time blocked off in my schedule but didn’t note the travel time. For me, this is between 7:30a-5:30p. Sounds or movements that I repeated every day without thinking about it.

Creating a Life List

Justin Levy

Though I believed in myself, I never thought I would have the amazing opportunities and experiences that now, years later, I’ve had. I’ve traveled to the Philippines, sailed the Caribbean islands ,  published a book ,  enjoyed dinner on a beach  while the sun set, sipped champagne overlooking a vineyard in Napa and many more memories.

A Day to Be Thankful

Justin Levy

Instead of traveling to a shelter for dinner, we are in Connecticut celebrating at my in-laws house with 15 people making their way over for an amazing dinner with all of the fixings. For the first several years of my life, I didn’t celebrate any holidays, including Thanksgiving, since I was raised a Jehovah’s Witness. There was one catch though: we were poor.

Become Healthier By Keeping a Food Journal

Justin Levy

No matter how well-intentioned you are, when stress or travel or a busy schedule strikes, working out is the first thing we toss aside. Leading a healthy lifestyle seems intimadating to people whether it’s that they’re not sure what is “right” to eat , how to properly workout or what supplements may support their efforts. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Recharging and Disconnecting

Justin Levy

All of this slowly wears us down, especially if you’re adding a lack of solid sleep, high stress environments, business travel, a lack of exercise or a sound diet to the mix. How important is recharging to you?  No, I’m not talking about the importance of keeping your gadgets charged.  We already know that we should always be charging all of our digital leashes.

Developing Routines and Finding Time

Justin Levy

But, I let the demands of work and travel get to me and over the past few years didn’t put a priority on sleep, eating as healthy as I could or getting to the gym as regularly as I should. Making anything a routine is hard. This becomes harder as the demands on our time increase. In my case, it’s working on making writing part of my routine again. Don’t be hard on yourself.

Happy Birthday, Laura!

Justin Levy

Your friends would all be recovering from the previous evening’s festivities and your family, if they didn’t live near you, would all be traveling back home to prepare for the upcoming work week. Imagine if your birthday fell the day after one of the biggest party days of the year. Doesn’t sound too much fun, huh? Well, my wife, Laura, happens to have that luck. Cheers!

Being Blocked from the Social Web

Now, I agree that it is good to disconnect to spend time with family and friends but not when you’re traveling for work and need access. Justin Parks may have a valid point regarding hotel's restricted 5mb, but it could be time for NML to get a UK phone(s) so that when one or more of you need to travel to Europe you are ready to go.

Yammer: We’re just deploying Yammer at New Marketing Labs but it is being used to keep our team connected so that we’re not constantly interrupting each other and so that we can stay in contact when we’re traveling.  We had used other internal networks such as Socialcast and they worked great but a few of our partners were already using Yammer so we decided to give it a try.

Sure, I was there for her but 2009 saw a sharp spike in my travel which caused me to be away from her a lot.  In previous years I’ve only had to travel a few times throughout the year, even though during those times they were generally long trips to the Philippines.  This year, though, had me traveling a few times per month adding up to around 50 times for the year.

Inspiration and Motivation

“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.&#.

Social Media and Travel

The New Business Traveler

While it's nice to think that Skype , WebEx or Facetime removes the need for business travel, nothing could be further from the truth. The thing is, that technology can now enhance the business travel experience. As brutal as travel is (and, as a Super Elite member, I can tell you that the road is hard, cold and miserable), it has changed dramatically over the years. Yes, the post 9/11 travel experience is tougher - longer lines, rules and limitations, etc, but for most businesses, it is a necessity. If I have to travel for more than five nights for business?
