Business trips can take us all around the world. Sometimes it can be stressful and difficult, especially if you’re away from family for long periods of time.
But, if you have to be on the road, it’s best to make effective use of your time. And, I strongly believe to be one of the best ways to become effective while out of town is to book yourself a classy room. More specifically, if you find yourself in Calgary, find a Calgary executive suite.
So what in the world makes me think that a nice room will make you more effective at your job? Well, let me nail it down for you.
Did you know there are studies that prove you have better retention and efficiency when you’re calm and unnerved? When you book a room at a sleazy hotel, how comfortable do you typically feel? You sit in your room and overhear conversations of those that are on the other side of the wall, you look at your bed and wonder how many parasites are going to attack you at night, and just the overall atmosphere of the room is dark and dank, which doesn’t exactly make you want to whip out your laptop and create a kick-butt presentation for your next meeting.
If, however, you reserved a nice room that makes you feel more like at home, your guard is down, you actually experience a calming quiet in your room, and the room often feels brighter and more welcoming. It almost inspires you to produce some of the best work of your life. Without interruptions, it’s amazing what you can produce. You might even surprise yourself.
Meet Other Executives
Do you know what happens when you stay in an executive suite? You meet other executives. Just by being friendly, you might very well meet your future client! Or, if you’re in the market for a new job, it’s very possible that one of your new comrades will suggest that you come work for them at their operation! By rubbing shoulders with other businessmen (rather than low income families at those other hotels), you might just create an opportunity for yourself. It might not have even been on your radar, but just by being in the right place at the right time, crazy things could happen.
Eat For Success
Many people don’t realize it, but what you eat has a direct impact on your mood and your brainpower throughout any given day. If you have a big fatty burger for lunch, chances are that you’re not going to be very sharp for the rest of the day. Instead, you’ll most likely be looking for a dark corner to take a nap in between business meetings!
If you stay in an executive suite, you’ll be able to cook up your own healthy brain food because you’ll have your own kitchen! All you have to do is buy some fish, marinade, rice, and some bread, and you’ve got a healthy dinner for your entire stay! Not only will you feel better, but you’ll look better too!
