Protect your calendar

In this episode we wanted to address another productivity issue.

We talk about the concerning trend of having an open calendar and how detrimental this can be for getting stuff done.

We talk about how we balance meetings vs deep work via time boxing.

Mentioned meeting quote: "Meetings are a symptom of bad organization. The fewer meetings the better." - Peter Drucker

We talk about the culture of "now vs when" and how Slack (ironically) gets this down! They seem to have embraced the "when you work, work, when you play, play".

We hope that after listening you take control of your calendar and tell us all about it:
