I leave more than enough time to get to the air­port, and on the ride there I pre­pare my­self for in­evitable hic­cups along the way–all of which gives me a calm ap­proach, if you will. I ex­pect de­lays and then I'm able to fly through them, or get `bonused' when things are on time. It's no good fight­ing travel stress when you're in the mid­dle of it. I find it bet­ter to pre­pare for it, and then it doesn't get the bet­ter of me. Oh, and drink wa­ter. En­joy the ride!”
