TimeDishonored

Time is the most precious and finite resource we have.

Dishonoring the time of others is one of the most disrespectful things we can do.

Yet, we see that dishonoring happen all the time.  Like this:

  • Scheduling meetings for meetings sake, with nothing substantive to address.
  • Showing up late for appointments.
  • Creating and delegating "busy work," simply to fill up time.
  • Engaging in long diatribes in response to straightforward questions.
  • Starting meetings/events late and/or letting them run long.
  • Interrupting one conversation (or phone call) to engage in another.
  • Cold calling (showing up without an appointment).
  • Being thoughtless of the time/effort/energy that another invest.
  • Showing up unprepared.
Note to self:  Respect the time of others as if it were my own.
