A couple of weeks ago I had an incident where I had 15 minutes to finalize a presentation before an important meeting, my office phone was ringing, my cell phone was ringing, I had email messages marked “urgent” piling up in my inbox, several instant message windows blinking at the bottom of my screen asking “Can you IM?”, and a person standing in my office doorway saying “Do you have a minute?”. The situation was completely ridiculous.
I want to be like Bill Murray: That same weekend I read this article while having my car’s oil changed. Spectacular. Read it. Seriously. It may infect your brain with possibilities like it has infected mine.
