I have a problem.
I believe things take less time than they actually do. In my world, there’s always room for one more errand, phone call, deliverable...
When this problem makes me very busy, I don’t mind. I like being busy. It feels good to have a steady stream of things I need to do.
When my problem makes me late, I do mind.
I hate being late.
I hate keeping people waiting.
So I’ve decided to take a proactive approach. Whenever there’s an appointment on my schedule, I’m going to cut out the last two things I plan to do before that appointment and resolve to be early.
If I’m heading to a meeting I can bring work with me so that I can feel productive while I wait for the meeting to start.
I’ll tell you how it goes!
Status: It’s a slow start. I wrote this post as I was running out to meet someone. I was late. I'll do better next time!
The cycle continues…
