Over the years here at Web Worker Daily we’ve given you lots of tips on how to be embrace the Internet for personal and professional productivity. Virtual meetings, video conferencing, screen sharing, collaboration software and techniques all to let you accomplish what you need to do from just about anywhere.
I know I certainly feel like I take advantage of every opportunity for efficiency that I am aware of, but sometimes I still need to leave the house or office. And sometimes I need to do it during a blizzard, like the one we are having here in Chicago today.
Sure I have electronic invoicing and payment options available, but I still get checks in the mail that need to go to the bank. I absolutely try to do as much client work as I can remotely, but sometimes I just have to be on site. Some meeting require a face to face, kids need to get to school or daycare, and while we do some shopping online groceries still require a trip to the market (no Peapod in our area yet.)
As much as we try to virtualize, we still need to occasionally venture out in the real world. Unfortunately the world today is cold, gray and under a foot of snow.
How do you stay virtual when the bad weather strikes?
