The 2016 Rio Summer Olympics are quickly coming to a close. Before the games began, the media were almost obsessed with the narrative that the city of Rio de Janeiro would blow the event on an epic scale. Between government upheaval in Brazil, concerns of Zika, and violence in the city, it was almost a foregone conclusion that the games would be a bust.
The games are almost over, and while analysts certainly won’t refer to these games as among the “most successful” in terms of attendance and revenue, things did seem to go relatively smoothly—at least much better than many had anticipated.
One interesting area of particular focus was the attention given to the Olympic Village where the athletes stay. There were many concerns that the Village wouldn’t be up to par and the athletes would suffer. But why does it matter if the athletes have great accommodations? Are they so spoiled that they insist on the best? No. The Olympic Committee knows that without athletes that are well-rested and at their peak, the competition would suffer. Everything starts with the quality of the stay of the athlete.
If you travel for business, the same could be said of you—that everything starts with the quality of the stay. When you’re on the road, you need to make sure you stay in a quiet, comfortable room so that you can be at your peak when trying to close that big sale or train clients in the field.
