I just returned from 2 weeks away on the road. I was out east visiting family and friends and while I don’t get to travel much these days, when I do it’s always a relaxing time. This trip my wife and I decided to upgrade our economy fares to first class, simply because…Well…It’s a much better experience lol
The food. The service. The leg room. The priority boarding. First class might be way over priced these days but the perks in my opinion can be a welcomed treat for many.
There was something I noticed when I was on the flights that I found very interesting….
I glanced around first class and saw men and women, nose deep into either a book or the newspaper.
Out of the 10 or so passengers in first class every single one was reading.
I then turned around and glanced into the economy section…Now obviously I didn’t walk up and down and peak into everyone’s seat but from where I was sitting, the majority of people had their earphones on and watching a movie on the in-flight entertainment system.
It got me thinking, here’s a 3 hour flight from the west to the east and there was a huge difference in what the passengers decided to spend their free time doing.
Sounds like something we talk about a lot here at Plus 1…What are you CHOOSING to do with your time?
Watching a movie? Re-runs of Seinfeld?
Or learning and growing yourself?
Personally, I would rather watch what other successful people are doing and it’s pretty obvious that the passengers in first class could not only afford to be up there, but maybe, just maybe, they could afford that luxury because of what they chose to do with their spare time…
Makes you wonder what else we could change in our own lives today to become better than we were the day before…
