Having too many meetings and appointments is a byproduct of curiosity, connections and commercial intent. I like the buzz and the beer. But my days are packed and they don't give me much time to reflect or think. I understand it's a trade-off.
Sometimes I share the analogy with friends that my calendar is like a well played, but losing game of Tetris. 'Well played' because there is very little unfilled space. 'Losing' because the column is filled to the top and the game is over.
Here are the images that reflect both.
