Staying Productive When You're Traveling for Work

I once saw a man get on a 3 hour flight with nothing. He had nothing to read, no laptop or tablet and there was no in-flight entertainment. He didn't sleep. He just sat there. I still don't know whether this is deeply disturbing or whether he should be applauded for reaching some level of inner Zen stillness that eludes most of us.

For now, I am going to go with "deeply disturbing". 

Every week I fly from New York to Chicago. And every week I fly back. It's 10 hours a week, door-to-door and, unlike Mr Zen, I am determined to NOT throw those 10 hours away. So here are ways I have come up with to get things one in the car, at the airport, or on the plane.
