Today is one of those days when you wish that people would answer their meeting invites. It is tough enough to schedule a ‘day with time for everything’ without being stood up.
- Answer the meeting invite. You can accept or reject the invitation. You can even propose a new time. Let people know that you can’t make it.
- Make sure that you are the person that should be attending the meeting.
- Don’t waste other people’s time or your own.
In other words, you must make time to be courteous. If you can’t, trust can never be achieved.
If you can’t show up, ante up.
