It’s a “first world problem”. Flight delays. When air travel works, I love travelling as a speaker and teacher. When there are delays… I start to reconsider how much it should be worth to leave my comfortable home city of Barcelona.
What to do when your flight is delayed?
- Step 1: be grateful that I am travelling alone, and not with my kids.
- Step 2: buy some food before the shops in the airport close and I am left starving.
- Step 3: hope that the connection in Madrid waits for us.
- Step 4: start writing…
Here’s one ugly looking departures screen at Barcelona airport this evening. There’s some storm hitting Portugal at the moment.
What I do when I am waiting? I write blog posts, I update my IESE technical notes, I add thoughts and ideas to my journal.
I’m sitting here for the next 2 hours… so hit me with your comments and let me know how you handle flight delays?
