When we don’t have time.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
Admit that this happens to you. Let’s think about it for a moment. But what is it really like not having time? First of all, I would say that it’s not given to you. This means that you agree not to own your own time. For example, in the context of a job, if you are an employee, you can be heavily supervised. In this context, the question does not really come to mind, you have no choice but to deliver the goods. In the case of a position with some “discretion” in your organisation, the question arises, as you are probably a victim to time invasion.
Calendar management tools offer the possibility to know, in real-time, the availability of your colleagues and, depending on social and business cultures, it’s not always easy to manage your own time. Some examples of cultural behaviours could be:
- No meetings on Monday mornings or on Mondays at all.
- No meetings early in the morning or late in the day.
- No meetings before or after lunch.
- No meetings on Friday afternoons or on Fridays at all.
- No meetings of more or less than t minutes.
- No meetings with more or fewer than p people.
- Prohibition or permission to block your calendar with or without a meeting on the agenda.
Etc. The list could go on and on.
