My week calendar becomes full in 10 minutes of activity
I'm a sales director. My work role assumes a lot of customer meetings and internal meetings with sales. I have a lot of Next Actions to assign those meetings. I like to procrastinate on those and here's the reason why. Each meeting is usually 1 or 1.5 to 2 hours. I'm not a robot so I can do 4 meetings (internal & external) a day leaving some time for daily Processing. Now imgine it's Monday morning and I have an empty calendar for the week (that's not true though). I make 12 calls and my calendar is full. But I have plenty of 'assign a meeting' Next Actions left on my lists.
The first question is how do you think is it OK to call a customer asking for a meeting in four or five days from today in today's hectic world? Second, how would you feel if you were asked for a meeting in a week from now? Do you think I should put away (to Someday list) the rest of Next Actions left on my list when the calendar is already full? Do you think I should schedule some comuter&office time to be able to do those tasks (sure, I have reports and other computer related stuff)?
