I was about to spend 20 minutes yesterday listening to hold music with British Airways. I decided to forgo it. OK: in point of fact, I decided to say #$*& that noise and hang up--b… http://www.sustainablelunacy.com/blog/todays-quick-tip-stop-waiting-hold/
I just found something extra-specially cool, however, for location independent folks with flexible schedules and insatiable wanderlust: Adioso.
Don't get me wrong: I love my travel search engines. I love Kayak (especially Explore). And AirfareWatchdog. And Hipmunk. And even Orbitz, very occasionally.

Next year is comin' up like a freight train, without brakes, screaming downhill through a tunnel you're standing in. Be ready. Rethink your resolutions.
I am a great lover of lists.
I love checklists, spreadsheets, calendars, online clip-and-file systems, agendas and callsheets. That, of course, makes December just about my fav… http://www.sustainablelunacy.com/blog/your-resolutions-are-all-wrong/
The time you spend in the social-media tractor beam is time that you could be investing in yourself. Take it back.
How much time per day do you spend scrolling through newsfeeds? How much total time do you think you've spent locked in infinite-scroll mode?
If you could magically collect a "re… http://www.sustainablelunacy.com/blog/escape-facebook-mountain/
Writing isn't just a talent, nor a gift: it's a habit. Here's how I weave the act of writing into every day -- and how you can, too.

Your "airport time" doesn't have to suck, even if you don't wait for the airline gods to grant you elite status. Buy your way in. It's cheaper than you think.
