BlackberrycurvebigFor the last six months my Blackberry has had me moving from meeting to meeting and appointment to appointment faster than ever.  It wasn’t so bad that I ever felt it was dangerous; but it definitely was not sustainable.  In was in the middle of this chaos a friend made the following simple suggestion:  “What if instead of having a weekly one-on-one with all your direct reports AND a weekly meeting with your Lead Team…instead do your one-on-ones one week and your Lead Team meeting the next week?”   This simple suggestion will create several extra hours in my schedule and this week I have started implementing this simple suggestion. It will allow me to more fully re-engage with our Big Idea creative team and begin to do some writing that I have been putting off since the end of last year.  Simple things can make a big difference!
