Let’s meet 6 months from now

By my calculations, September 10, 2008 will be just about 6 months to the day, from today.

Here is a sure-fire way to decide if someone else is skilled at managing their time – set a phone call for September 10th, at 12:30pm.

Someone with a weak time management system close to that of a novice won’t be able to make the appointment. In fact, they might not even know what to do with it.

Some will get tricky, and say, “Remind me of it closer to the day.” When we rightly refuse to play the part of their reminder system, what will they do next? Others will demur saying, “I don’t plan that far out.”

The Green Belt merely schedules the engagement into their calendar, and makes the appointment.
