I love blogging. Not only is it fun, it’s a never ending source of sources!
I’m working on a few things right now that I’d love to chat with people about. First, recurring meetings. They’re a staple of life in many offices. If it’s Monday at 10 a.m., you must be having a staff meeting. But there are different schools of thought about this. They have their passionate defenders (i.e. the managers who schedule them). They can also be big time wasters, since they don’t have to earn their place on your calendar. What do you think? Have you ever killed a recurring meeting? How did it go? Or, perhaps, have you instituted one?
Second, I’ve produced a rough draft of my next book, Mosaic, but I’d like to freshen it up with some new interviews. So, if you thought about keeping a time log for me as part of it (see the criteria here) but didn’t, yet would like to share any time management challenges or strategies using your real name, I’d love to talk with you. I’m particularly interested in strategies for making family time fun and home life easier, but I’ll take career strategies or me time strategies too. (I don’t have to use your employer’s name — just what industry you’re in).
As always (or if you’d like to see something covered here) you can email me at lvanderkam at yahoo dot com. Now off for another long weekend — I’ll be back to blogging next Tuesday or so!
