It’s my diary and I’ll decline if I want to!

“Paul, you declined the meeting but I can see half an hour in your diary.”

The gist of the message I got yesterday. A black and white interpretation of my day which I have to say, threw me a bit.

Travel between offices, breathing time, lunch, admin time; all things that until yesterday I didn’t think I needed to mark on my calendar.

It led to me justifying why I couldn’t make a 30 minute call.

Presence indicators, out of office replies, voice mail messages, radioactive isotopes?

How do you deal with the rocks if you’re not helped in taking care of the sand?
