How many times do you block out your calendar for focused or creative work, and it gets swallowed up by meetings? Do you move it around until you have 30 minutes left on Friday when you have no discipline or energy left to think?
Creative people need uninterrupted time without distractions to prevent status-quo decision-making and to focus on innovation. Block time with another person or group and meet virtually. Hold each other accountable by proclaiming what you will accomplish.
