Show Notes

Productive mobility allows us to add value to our businesses when we aren't in the office. This gives us the freedom to work from a wider variety of locations improving our quality of life. But how do we make the most of this time? I've been using this kind of mobility for quite a while now and I've developed a kit that really works for me that I thought I'd share with you.

Let's get mobile!

For more detailed information listen to the audio version of the podcast or watch the livestream recording.

Business Principle

Efficiency + Effectiveness = Freedom

Key Components

Timbuk2 Backpack (https://b50p.info/timbuk2 - ;( sadly the one I have has been discontinued and while I wasn't super complimentary during the show I have to say that my Timbuk2 is by far the best commuting backpack I've owned.)

Tom Bihn Cafe Bag (https://b50p.info/cafebag)

Tom Bihn Cafe Bag Organizer (https://b50p.info/cafebagorganizer)

I double protect my Macbook Pro with a sleeve just to be on the safe side.

Here are some screen caps if you don't have time to watch the livestream.

 

 

There's not much more to it. I try to keep my backpack as minimalistic as possible just to keep it light. Of course when I'm traveling by plane it gets a bit heavier but normally it's what you see here.

Practical Action

The next time you have a few minutes to think about it just go through your mobile work station... whatever that looks like and make sure:

  • You have what you need
  • It's well organized
  • You don't have extraneous stuff (this reduced efficiency when you have to dig around stuff you don't need to find the stuff you do need)

In the interests of actually producing the podcast and getting it out regularly I've dumped the intro videos. Is that a mistake? Let me know at [email protected]!
