If you're travelling long distances and all you have to keep you occupied is your window view, the time in your corporate car rental seems to pass slowly. Arm yourself with some fun tunes or bring along an iTrip, which will help make business trips entertaining and efficient.
Start rocking out with some of your favorite songs. Choosing ones that will get your heart pumping and make you want to dance in your seat will keep you wide awake on the road. Huffington Post readers recently picked a list of a mix of their favorite business travel songs that include "Sweet Disposition" by The Temper Trap, "American GIrl" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and "Roadrunner" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
You can also pass the time and get ahead on your reading list, because many books and lectures are available on tape or can be downloaded for an iPod. If you're looking for book suggestions, some of the books on the "Top 500 Audio Book Bestsellers List" are "The Racketeer" by John Grisham, "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, and "The Casual Vacancy" by J.K. Rowling. Busy professionals might also consider business-related audio books, like "The Power of Your Voice" by Dr. Carol Fleming, "The Magic of Thinking Big" but David Schwartz and "Advanced Selling Strategies" by David Lieberman.
