It’s not always easy to take a trip when you have a tremendous amount going on in your work life, and your personal life, but if you are planning and preparing ahead of time you can relax while you vacation and make money.
I’ve always thought of myself as a moderately organized person, so what happens before I leave to go on a trip? I shared in this video how important it is to plan and prepare so you can relax while you are away, knowing your company can still run, or your house hold will remain in tact.
Here are a few personal items to get organized before leaving on any journey. I hope you find them helpful.
Be sure to leave emergency numbers where you can be reached by your staff or relatives
Take enough money for tolls, cash on hand and credit if needed.
Stock your car with:
Favorite pre-bagged healthy snacks and lots of clean fruit
A cooler with water and favorite drinks.
CD’s, MP3′s, DVD’s, DVD Player, Games, Colored pencils, crayons, a few coloring books, sticker books, travel games, travel journal for older kids
To avoid the difficulty of hauling in a suitcase for every person into a hotel for the 1 night stops, just pack an overnight bag that each person contributes to. This way you take one suitcase of clothes in.
Do bring one small toiletry bag with everyone’s products
Do be sure to grab a sweater or jacket for cooler evenings.
Have motion sickness medicine handy to prevent illness
Have an extra trash bag in back for kids to throw away empty containers or paper
Bring a First Aid kit because you just never know when you might need to help someone out
Have a tool bag, a jack and jumper cables in the trunk
Hopefully you have found some great ideas for your next journey, whether on business or for pleasure. And don’t forget to make your own list of what to do before you return to the office. Just choose the top 2 priority items until you get caught up on your rest.
