Know Thy Meetings

If there is one practical thing that I have learned (or am learning) this year of blogging, it’s got to be: confirm meetings before making the 5-6 hour commute!

This week we were in the middle of switching meeting schedules for two ongoing project meetings.   I thought that they both started the new schedule next week, but no, one change was this week and the other starts next week.

The lesson is that I should have double checked and/or been crisper in my questions, because I ended up coming in on the “wrong” day for my objective, which is to have as many customer meetings face-to-face as possible, within my commute schedule.
