It’s no surprise that you might be asked today to take immediate action for a client, prospect, coworker or supervisor. The only questions are who, what and when. So plan for it…
Casey’s eTip: Make Room for the Predictably Unpredictable
Don’t fill more than half your day with meetings if possible. (And it’s more possible than you think!). Also, your “Do Today” tasks should fill less than 50% of the remaining work day. Now, when the expected “unexpected” work arises, you have time. If it doesn’t, your master task list will guide you.
