Nobody tracks/counts travel. For most of us though, travel time is spent working. 50-55 is the dream, 55-60 common, 60-65 for steerco weeks, 65+ is the bad kind of spikey

I kept track for a while. Ended up at 65 hours on average with a range of 45 (rare...) to 80.

Are these hours mon-fri hours? Or are you counting work you do on the weekends?

No real weekend work though many of us spend 1-2 hours prepping Sunday. Calendar and inbox mgmt mostly

Have great global brand/prestige that will make me as desirable exiting consulting now vs exiting that company in the future
