At Eagle Logistics, we are full of tips for truckers.
We could go on and on with tidbits of wisdom from our many years of experience, but today we want to talk about HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR HOME TIME. You’ve earned it, you need it, people need you - what do you do? Well, here are some tips for truckers like you.
No. 237 - Maximize Home Time
To be brief, you must prioritize your needs. Although Eagle Logistics values our truckers enough to offer guaranteed, regular home time, even we don’t know all of your personal needs and we certainly don’t want to manage your personal time for you. Time for recouping, visiting doctors, attending activities, maintaining hobbies or professional endeavors, knocking out Honey-Dos, exercising, nurturing relationships, and others are all legitimate reasons to be home, and they are worth fighting for. You are more than an employee and you’re worth more than what you produce. Trucking is not easy work, so make sure you are filling yourself up with some restorative parts of life.
An app like MindNode could be huge for you. It helps you develop and organize your thoughts and identify your priorities through mind mapping. It sounds hokey, but it’s really cool if you just jump into it. A tool like that can help you start with a broad idea like “I like to be outdoors,” and three steps later you realize you like going to baseball games with your neighbor’s dog on Tuesdays. That was dumb. We’re sorry.
You can also go wild and simply try things.
Eagle Logistics is serious about wanting our family of drivers to be safe, healthy, and happy. Whether that’s through maximizing home time, managing money, caring for your health, or just good ol’ fashioned enjoying life, we want the most for you. So if you are interested in working with a company like that, apply here, or contact us here. Use our Tips for Truckers: No. 1 - Work for Eagle Logistics and find your trucking home!
