“Look at the location of your upcoming meetings and see how you can package them together so there is less travel,” says Vickery. “Or perhaps, make one day out of the week your travel/meeting day during which you line up all your meetings, so that the rest of the week you can stay put. This can really help with the gas bill and result in more productivity. Also, don’t forget to call ahead and confirm the meeting just to avoid an unnecessary trip.”
