On today’s show we are talking about adapting work habits when you travel.

This month I’m spending the entire month away from home and will be working from the beautiful ancient city of Rome.

Working on a different time zone means that I have the mornings to myself and am able to get those focus tasks done without interruption while everyone is still sleeping in North America. Meetings don’t start before 3PM for me which is 9AM east coast time. The most difficult thing to manage is the time zone to the west coast, where we have at most one hour of overlap. 6PM in Europe is 9AM in California and Washington.

If I don’t establish boundaries, then the temptation exists to work at all hours of the day.
