TIME MASTER TRAVEL TIPS

GET YOUR JOURNEY INFORMATION ONCE

A friend of mine operates like this. If he gets an invitation to travel somewhere on business, he looks at the train or travel times on the Internet, 'to see what sort of journey it's going to be'. Then a week or so before his journey and meeting he looks at the times again, this time 'to fix the details in my head', he says. Finally, two days before travelling, again he pulls up the train details on the web to book his tickets! On three separate occasions he has invested his time in doing battle with the train company's website; not an easy task. He could have done it once and dealt with all the issues then. How often do you replicate jobs unnecessarily?
