One of my professional mentors taught me a very useful tip on how to travel when flights get canceled due to bad weather.

He had a very simple idea: Keep moving forward toward your destination.

If a direct flight isn’t available, take a flight with a connection.

If a flight with a connection in the middle of your starting point and ending point isn’t available, then take a flight with a connection that overshoots your destination (to get out of bad weather) and take a connecting flight back to your destination.

If there are no flights out of your airport, drive toward your destination and try the next-nearest airport.

If Uber isn’t available, rent a car and drive toward your destination.

If car rentals are sold out, take a train toward your destination and pick up a rental car en route if needed.

I’ve used this travel tip for 20+ years. It has always proved to be helpful.

I think it’s also a great metaphor for navigating life in less-than-ideal conditions.

Keep moving forward (toward your goal).
