Can you nail your bonus with a ‘secret” extra work week every month?
~ plus you’re looking for ways to get back to work without the trains anyway
Think about it: Ninety minutes or more into New York City every day from Weston, Wilton or New Canaan, right? (or Chappaqua, Pound Ridge or Bedford, NY for that matter) …and double it to come home.
That’s 15-20 hours a week (60 hours a month, conservatively) lost to schlepping from house to car to railroad parking ..with a long walk to the platform. Then: train, subway and how many blocks to your office. ..never mind sometimes shoveling snow to start that whole process. With a Teddy’s, you work or rest door-to-door each way.
Try just a slice to start: Grab another commuter from your ‘social bubble’ and share the ride each day. Try 3 days a week, maybe only inbound – at least that cuts your exposure to crowded trains in half those days. We had two Goldman guys do that for years – they met their Teddy’s driver at the Westport train station three mornings a week for the ride in – at a great discount – and took the train back home. The hardest part was how to split their Teddy’s Platinum Reward Miles. Want to see some math on this? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
