No one likes to hear about a delay in their travel plans. It happens so have a plan.
The book says,
When your train doesn't arrive on time or your flight is delayed, see opportunities. Get out your laptop or notepad and make a list of positive things that could come about because of the delay.
Think of the delay as a blessing that gives you extra time to use in myriad ways. You could:
*Make some phone call
*Catch up on paperwork
*Study a map
*Network with others
*Brainstorm some new ideas
*Write some postcards, emails or even outline a book
Even traveling by car there are often delays. Construction, an accident, a detour can set you behind if you have to reach your destination by a certain time. Plan ahead for these. Don't forget if it's going to be too long call the hotel/motel where you booked reservation and let them know of your delay also.
Just For Today: The next time we plan an outing, I will use this idea to plan ahead for any delays.
