I just have to share this very short video tip from Dan Pink with you. It is under 2 minutes long and is part of Dan's very funny but insanely useful series of travel tips. If you are a road warrior, check this one and the others out pronto.
I like this particular tip a lot because I get sucked into the TV tractor beam all too often. I love his three alternatives and am going to give them a try on my next trip. One of the reasons for my weakness against the magnetic pull of the hotel TV, I think, is that we don't have cable TV at home (just local channels) and I find myself fascinated with all the other stuff. I love @peirsmorgan, love the gritty shows on HBO and, yes, I will admit that my guilty pleasure is the house hunters international edition (where people look for houses in other countries).
But do ANY of these shows make me happier? No. OK, Pink, I'm in.
