Anyone who lives in London and has to suffer the tubes in a morning will tell you that aside from reading the free Metro or Evening Standard newspaper and picking up the complimentary Sport or TimeOut supplements, their commute is perhaps not the most enjoyable experience.
In a bid to avoid moaning or encourage people to smile through their journey to work, (as I know that my own mind, body and soul doesn't start functioning until I've had my morning coffee with two sugars from the guys at my local Cafe Nero), I do, however, think there's an opportunity to be had in maximising the time spent underground. My commute is typically an one hour door-to-door journey, slowly trudging along the district line as the (what can only be described as) wagon I'm sat on attempts to get me from West To East London.
Those 40mins spent sat down are usually consumed with my head being buried within the aforementioned supplements, flicking my way through the same articles day after day. That's why I have decided to make a New Year's' revolution to myself; that I will be more productive with my commute as often as possible. This may be through dedicating more time to writing, thinking and acting positively towards all things Bpositive. Creating content for blogs (as I am just now), making photo edits, jotting down notes, things to do, lists, scribbling down ideas, songs of the week suggestions, thoughts and plans etc - whatever it is just do it and be more productive - that's my goal.
There's certainly a window of opportunity with my combined 80 minute daily commute to be of more use to myself and more effective to the things around me - and one I aim to try and fulfil throughout the year. So watch this space, get on board and mind the gaps in these forthcoming ramblings from the district line.
Chances are I'm being held at a red signal at Earl's Court.
