Why You Should Build “White Space” Into Your Schedule

by | Mar 6, 2019 | Leadership

I need white space in my life. I can’t stand clutter and I avoid it everywhere I can—at home, in the car, in my email inbox. At work, it all starts with my calendar. I fight for white space on my calendar—and by that, I’m not only helping myself, but the company as well.

Everyone gets busy, and there are days when you may have meetings all day. But these meetings are only useful if they move the ball forward. Look at your schedule ahead of time and ask yourself “Do I need to be in every meeting I am scheduled to be in?” Create that white space.

Make sure you are working on the right things that are going to have the biggest impact.
