Great post on ‘flying solo‘ with insight on managing time through a cab driver’s routine…“Here’s what I learned:
1. He avoids stress by starting slowly
Eduardo hits the road early and is always out and about by 4am. He doesn’t do this because there are masses of punters around, he does it because it helps him acclimatise to the growing traffic.
As he described to me, traffic build ups trouble you less when it’s gradually happening around you. It’s when you drop straight into a snarl up that you suffer.
I see a parallel with my email inbox. It’s the difference between doing what’s important to me at my pace, before I dive into the jam of other people’s priorities.
2. He doesn’t focus on earnings
…. He measures the success of a day by how many interesting people he meets. And guess what? He finds everyone interesting.”
