by | Jan 16, 2019

Adding that, this can be thought of as a “power hour.” If you find that your power hour is more towards the end of the day, then plan accordingly. Once you have settled on a time that works for you, take steps to protect and improve the quality of your power hour. Take the time to actually schedule the the hour in your agenda. Let colleagues know that you will be busy during that time.
