People do a variety of things on planes, from very active to very passive. For me, airplane time is some of my most creative strategic thinking time because there are very few interruptions and there’s a very different creative perspective from which to think.

So next plane flight, don’t distract yourself (with iPods, DVDs, etc.) or others (with idle small talk) – simply think, contemplate, and be creative in whatever ways you do best.
