to Schedule a Global Meeting

My 10 Administrative #Mantras
#45: Try reducing your manager's 1-hour meetings to 45-minutes for more breathing space and less back-to-back scheduling chaos.
#2: Block at least 2 non-negotiable, 2-3 hour focus times per week for your manager to work without interruption.
#13:00 is 1:00 pm in the U.S., but most of the world runs on military time. As a courtesy and proactive precaution, always advise participants of the meeting time in THEIR time zone and format.
#24: Respond to all emails and phone messages within 24 hours. Also, "I don't know" is the best response when you don't know...but be sure to follow up with "however, I will find out and get back to you."
#20: Google reportedly processes 20 petabytes of data per day. (1 petabyte = 1,000 terabytes). Google is your office wife. If you don't know how to do something, read an article, watch a video, or take a class online.
#1-2: Cut once, measure twice. Always check your work before you hit send. Always.
#1-3-5: Every day, strive to accomplish 1 big project, 3 medium-size and 5 small projects/tasks.
#5: Take 5-minute breaks in between 20-25 minutes of focused work. Trust me, this Pomodoro Time Management hack will improve output, focus, and peace of mind.
#10: When triggered or uncertain, count to 10. Be responsive, not reactive.
#7,577,130,400 is the number of people on earth as of 2019. Do good work - in the digital age, you never know how many people you may impact. Be of service. In the words of Ram Dass, "We are all just walking each other home."
