Seven hours in a car with a co-worker can be daunting, Luckily, I like (most) everyone I work with. The thought of cruising down I-35 to Austin brings to mind several thoughts: catching up on sleep, listening to that “new” Vampire Weekend album, or feverishly finger-typing emails on my phone. Or maybe, just maybe…it’s an opportunity to chat with my driving buddy. This time out of the office can be a nice mental break from the day-to-day grind, forcing one to slow down. With the mass quantities of emails flying around the office, taking some time to have a casual chat about a particular project detail, a business development opportunity, or traveling office protocol can actually solve problems. Who knows…maybe talking can be more efficient than emailing.
