It’s one thing sitting next to a screaming baby or a smelly person, while traveling. It’s annoying and can definitely drive you crazy, but it’s a whole different story sitting next to them while trying to actually get some work done.
I mean, seriously, how frustrating is it to try and reply your emails, writing the same line over and over again because you find it difficult to focus while Mrs. lonely over there on the seat next to you is completely ignoring every basic rule of politeness, forcing you to look at all of her kids’ photos.
Now, not to say kids are not a joy to look at, but I would much rather be able to choose if and when I want to enjoy their chocolate-smeared faces, especially when trying to work.
This is exactly why I prefer choosing my seat, almost wherever I go. Because rather than listening to an endless stream of this woman’s monolog, I could be sitting next to the operations manager of an interesting company or the business development VP from the company I’ve always wanted to work with. In other words, this trip, and many others, could actually become the business trip it was always meant to be. Why not use it for networking instead of wasting my time sitting next to Mrs. lonely??
I want to be able to choose my travel companions wherever I go, and not because I’m that particular in my taste of people, but because my time means a lot to me, and I want to decide who to spend it with.
Today more than ever people, especially business-men and women, appreciate their time and care about whom they spend it with. They want to decide where to sit, as much as they want to decide what to eat and where to sleep.
Social seating offers exactly that. It gives us the power to choose how to spend our time, by enabling us to decide where to sit and who to sit next to, wherever we go.
So if you appreciate your time, you need to start thinking not only on what to eat and where to sleep, but first and foremost, who you’re going to be sitting next to in all your endeavors.
