I worked some long hours last week, and it really seemed hellish until I could see some of what I was working on. We got the magazine out and I’m working on another book project, all while I have another web project coming up. I actually had meetings scheduled on top of other meetings. So, I missed a couple of meetings including one that my boss, the CMO, was attending as well.
Having a Palm Pilot hasn’t meant anything to my managing my time. Because none of the meetings I missed were sent via Outlook. My old job was at a place where everyone sent meeting requests via Outlook. If you were in a meeting and scheduled another meeting, then you received a meeting request almost as soon as you walked back into your office. Different corporate culture, but better.
