I got a call yesterday from a former client who I’ve been trying to reach for the last couple of months (truth be told it was more like three months!).
He usually gets back to me within two days tops. So, you can guess my surprise at getting his call! Seeing his name pop up on my caller ID I picked up immediately.
My client apologized profusely for not getting back to me. He mentioned that I’ve been on his mind and on his “to call” list but has never quite found the time to fit me in. He said, “Meetings, meetings, meetings! I’m in them all of the time and I can’t seem to get any work done! As a matter of fact, I only have five minutes to talk before I go into my next meeting!”
I thought to myself, “You can’t get any work done? What’s the purpose for having all of those meetings anyway?”
