People often ask me how I manage to keep on top of everything when I travel so much. Part of the answer is that I get a lot of work done on planes and, in the case of this recent trip to Europe, trains. So, on a 10.5 hour flight back from London to Phoenix, with an hour delay on the ground, I catch up with a lot of e-mail and manage to work on my “Introduction to Business Intelligence Seminar” that I will be delivering in Canada in three days time. I did watch one TV British comedy show about a group of middle class, suburban housewives who take settling scores to extremes. In this episode, they start a Fight Club to settle a few of their disputes with each other. Thirty minutes of “light entertainment” and back to thumping away on my keyboard (I’m a “two-fingered hammer” typist). The guy next to me wants to sleep and decides to move seats, as he can see I’m never going to stop.
After 8 days of rain and cold, it’s good to be back in the heat of Phoenix, Arizona.
