I’ll Pencil You In…

But, you only get 45-minutes of my time.

The next time you set a meeting with someone consider setting aside just 45 minutes in your calendar rather than the typical hour.   After reading this blog from LifeHacker.com, I decided to do just that.  It is incredible the amount of time that I seem to have recovered in my day as a result.

I found that if you stick to what needs to be discussed and accomplished in the meeting and each party leaves with a clear idea of what the next steps are, you can spend less time meeting and more time doing.  In a service based business, like mine, the results is what gets you paid – and to achieve those results you have to do… not just meet about what you want to do.
