How it works
Travel time becomes your time
No check-in time, traffic jams or parking problems. The international train will bring you directly to the heart of the city. This means you can spend your entire travel time working on that important presentation or relaxing while reading a good book. What you do is up to you.
Need inspiration? Read our 3 tips.
Tip 1: Be inspired
Once you're on the train, all you have to do is enjoy the ride. Maybe in your company, you do things on autopilot. Rightly so? Or can you do more? You now have a few extra hours to learn what others are doing. Read the best business blogs, listen to inspiring TED Talks or get lost in that book you've wanted to read.
Tip 2: Make your trip even more comfortable
Even on a busy train, you can set yourself up in such a way that you get a few undisturbed hours to yourself. An anti-publication filter on your laptop stops people from watching. And noise cancelling headphones shut you off from noise, so you can travel in your own cocoon. Don't want to be at all aware of the world around you? This fantastic sleeping pillow offers a solution!
Tip 3: Make the most of your travel time
On the train you have the facilities and time to prepare your appointment. There's no need to stress-out the night before. Turn your travel time into working time. In addition, there are many apps and tools that help you to be even more productive. You can also choose to do nothing at all. And why not? You already work hard on a daily basis. Good time to (start) meditating!
