I fly a lot. To work my craft. To serve my clients. To pursue my Mighty Mission of helping as many people lead, create and produce legendary lives as I can. For as long as I can.
The world is becoming messier, more volatile, increasingly chaotic and less human than I’ve seen it.
You and I need to work together–as never before–by doing our finest work, modeling our greatest brilliance, expressing our highest values and optimistically influencing everyone we encounter to make their rise from status quo to rare-air.
So, as you adventure through life, here are 9 tips I lovingly wrote for travelers who want to stay at their peak, while waiting at the airport in Rome for a flight to Zurich before an all-night flight to South Africa:
#1. Stay rested.
Get more than your usual amount of sleep. Grab a nap when you can. Staying rested keeps you inspired, creative, productive and joy-fueled as you travel. It also prevents you from forgetting your iPad or passport in a security checkpoint bin because you’re exhausted. Frequent flyers know exactly what I mean.
#2. Stay hydrated.
Water is the uber-traveler’s ultra-weapon. Optimizes the brain. Scales your energy. And keeps you healthy while you explore the globe.
#3. Stay safe.
Keep your eyes open. Watch your belongings. Be polite and respectful. Don’t be out late. Don’t look for trouble. And trouble won’t find you.
#4. Stay fit.
Run my Forced Optimization Strategy (FOS) that I’ll teach in detail, along with 100s of other elite performance tools, at my annual flagship event The Titan Summit coming up this December in Zurich. [Registration for the small number of seats available opens late in September].
The FOS simply means you “force” a ritual by setting it up, scheduling it and automating it, long in advance.
So book a trainer to meet you at 5 am at your hotel to push you hard in the gym each morning of your visit. Your energy will be so much higher. Your health will grow so much better. And please remember: the way you feel after an intense workout with a pro is always massively better than the way you felt before your early morning workout.
The Forced Optimization Strategy is a beautiful tactic for zero-excuses to stay lean and strong while you travel the planet.
#5. Stay productive.
Flight time is game time. Eat clean. Less entertainment at 40,000 feet. More planning and making your finest work.
Put too much salt on your dessert so it’s impossible to eat it. Put three Flight Goals on a Post-It Note on the TV screen in front of you to inspire your brain to get them done during the trip.
Think about all your flights over all your career. Using that time like a history-maker versus an amateur makes the difference between average results and legendary impact.
#6. Stay happy.
FaceTime your family from cool places. Bring a good book or journal when you’re eating alone. Find the time to savor precious art, get lost in a new city, run along the iconic sites and have some fun. Life’s too short to stay stuck in serious.
#7. Stay lean.
Anything more than carry-on is lost luggage in my mind. Also wastes a lot of time at the other end while you wait for your bags.
And don’t buy much–including magazines and airport trinkets. Stay nimble, fast, lean and Spartan.
A special life has less to do with what you purchase and more to do with what you experience.
#8. Stay focused.
Airports, hotels and restaurants have become noisier than ever as people take calls over meals, watch videos on their devices on planes (sometimes without headphones) and get notified about new social friends in cafes.
Block it all out by rising early (running at 5 am in a beautiful city is an unforgettable blessing), using your own headphones (I sometimes play the sound of water falling on a lake to delete all the distractions; read about “attention residue” and you’ll get why an addiction to distraction is the end of masterful production).
Carving out time alone in your room to recalibrate and refuel is just how A-Players play.
#9. Stay humble.
My father is one of the humblest people I know. He’s taught me so much. Worked as a family doctor until he was 79. I asked him why? “Because my patients need me,” he replied simply.
So as you travel, leverage your humility.
Exploit the opportunity to learn, have conversations with the locals and maintain The Eyes of Wonder. Remember: what makes a master is she never thinks she’s a master. Stay open, present, curious.
Hope these 9 tips I’ve discovered by having boots on the ground for 2 decades in 80+ countries are helpful to you. Love every minute as a road warrior. You’re blessed to fly.
