Write? Right.

It’s Wednesday lunchtime and I’m sat staring at a blank screen. I need to write something for the Blog, but the phone’s been ringing all morning. And when it wasn’t ringing I was visited at my desk and questioned by people who tell me they kept getting the engaged tone when they called so they felt a personal visit may help.

It doesn’t as conversations face to face tend to drift off in all sorts of directions and take up more time than phone calls, which in turn take up far more time than e-mail, or better still, text. I have to go out.

It’s now Thursday morning and I still haven’t started writing something for the Blog. When do people find time to write stuff? I’ve got a great idea for a topic, but I have a meeting in five minutes and I’ve just been told I have to stand up and say something.

Thursday lunchtime. My time. I’ve written this. I’ll put some time aside tomorrow to work on my idea for the Blog, but right now I have to go out.
