Hindsight – 10/20/10 – Phone Meetings
Being the meeting initiator allows me to set the mental on and off ramps between tasks on my own terms instead of the other person. That way if I’m mentally crunching right up to the meeting time on something I know they won’t call early. The other advantage is not needing to wait around for the other party to call me. Not knowing if they are running one minute or five minutes late. With me as the initiator, I know the meeting will start on time.
