Advice from the ultimate road warrior
Ten or fifteen years ago, if you walked into a typical hotel room catering to business travelers, you’d likely encounter a dodgy, uncomfortable chair behind what was nominally a work desk. If you visit a business-oriented hotel today — particularly chains like Hyatt and Marriott — you’ll likely be able to plop your behind into a sleek, comfortable Aeron chair.
How did this transformation happen? I have a two-word theory: Tom Peters.
Tom, whose travels make most road warriors look like road wimps, ranted about the chair problem for years. And his true believers — I proudly number myself among them — cheered urged him on.
Then the crappy chairs began to disappear, the good ones started showing up — and Tom was proven both correct and effective once again.
That’s why I’m excited to see that Tom is offering up Roadwarrior Tips on his site. The first one, though “aimed” mostly at men, is a gem. Trust me: The rest will be must-reads for anyone lugging a wheelie.
