Imagine Jane who works at an ad agency. She has reached the Director level and was just asked to update the CEO about the Acme account in one hour.
Scenario one – Jane goes to her office, spends 15 minutes going though all the correspondence, 45 minutes organizing her work, what has been done and what still needs to be done and 15 minutes talking to her assistant about her plans for next weekend.
Scenario 2 – Jane goes back to her office and is so stressed she cannot see straight. She barely gets through the emails and doesn’t organize what still needs follow-up. By the time she walks into the CEO’s office she has to clutch the files to stop her hands from shaking.
