PRIORITIZE BEFOREHAND

“Create a list of things you absolutely need to do and put off everything that can wait. Remember that as mosquitoes can ruin safaris, unnecessary work can ruin your vacation.”

PACK AN 8-FOOT EXTENSION CORD

“It needs to be long because the hotel room power outlet is usually on the other side of the room from the desk. Also, bring a USB stick for printing anything at the front desk.”

PREPARE YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER

“Have an agreement with your companion so he or she doesn’t get too irritated with your working. Carve off time while they shop and crank through stuff while they’re getting ready.”

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DOWNTIME

“A great productivity tip is to be ready for those weird little windows of time, like a plane delay or when you’re waiting in line for a Disney ride, which takes 45 minutes.”

EASE BACK IN SLOWLY

“For every day you unplug, you need one hour of time to get back up to speed. In other words, don’t schedule wall-to-wall meetings for the first day you’re back.”
