When scheduling an appointment for a meeting outside the office be sure to schedule drive time before and after the meeting, plus a little extra time to pack up what you need for the meeting. I have found this tip to be very helpful. It gets me off the phone or out of a meeting in time to prepare myself for the next meeting and get there without feeling pressure to be on time. This tip also prevents others, who can see your calendar on the network, from scheduling a meeting with you that runs right up to your meeting out of the office. Give it a try and see how relaxed and prepared you are when you arrive at your destination, on time and focused!
