This Google Map trick can save you a lot of time at work. I use it a lot, and I was surprised that they did not know this trick when I was talking to a client. So here it is.
We rarely make trips from point A to point B in business. What we tend to do is when we leave work to have a few places to go too.
See the instructions here.
Now say I want to go from work to
) Shop in Dandenong
) A shopping centre in Keysborough South
) A shopping centre in Keysborough
and then come back to work
This trip will take me 42 minutes based on current road conditions.
Now since I can see the route, I change the stops slightly
Now my trip is 40 minutes
Since I think I can do better, I changed it again. Now it is done in 38 minutes.
So I have saved about 10% of my trip time.
When you have like ten destinations, the saving can be considerable.
Give it a go!
