The Sanctity of Your Calendar

Schedule enough large chunks of time on your calendar to focus on the work.

Go through your calendar at the beginning of every week, and write out your top 3 priorities.

Question if you truly need to be at this meeting.

You should attend a meeting when: a) you believe your presence will change the outcome in a leveraged manner, or b) you will be much more effective as a result of being there.

Ask if the meeting can be made more efficient.

Create time for learning and inspiration.

Be conscientious of which things you are doing because you love it, and which you are doing because it is important.
