My Typical Day @ The Office & easymeeting.net
Today´s blog is about my typical day at the office. Normal Mondays start with getting myself and the kids ready for the week. Breakfast and lunch are made up, clothes picked out and out the door. Before videoconferencing I would have commuted to the office after having dropped off the kids, which would take me through perhaps 1-1.5 hours of traffic (normal travel time is 28 minutes) during the peak of rush hour so I can sit down and meet colleagues, resellers and end user customers. However this is my typical day.
I started the day out getting the kids ready, my wife took the oldest to school while the smallest was "sleeing in" after a long weekend of playing with his friends, I logged onto my MAC, checked my email and noticed a request for attendance for an early meeting in London to start at 8:00 AM. I happen to live about 10 minutes from the airport but could only with the greatest personal stress and cost make a 8:00 AM ad-hoc meeting. Tele-Conferencing is not an option as this is a reseller partner needing demonstration of our services help. While my youngest on slept I connected at 8:00 AM using our easymeeting.net conference room service number 9875 and held a fantastic 30 minute demonstration with our London, UK. partner. My son woke up, we prepared for the week and he was dropped off at the daycare while I headed to the office (yes sometimes one has to be physically present) after rush-hour had ended. 28 minutes later I am in the office and 10 minutes after that I am working with our partner in Helsinki, Finland again via easymeeting´s videoconferencing services.
My schedule for the day includes meetings with Hameenlinna, Finland & Stockholm, Sweden as well as Mystic, Connecticut. What is great about my typical day is... I do this all without leaving the office and I am home for dinner with my family. Face to face meetings are so much productive than tele-conferences as one feels they are in the same room. Add the fact that I use my fixed easymeeting conferencing room 9875 and my day is as productive as it could be without sitting in traffic or going through airport security or while on the phone in a less productive tele-conference while the other callers are likely paying less attention and multi-tasking.
Looking at the coming week I have meetings planned with Connecticut and Massachusetts, Nebraska, California, London and Reading, UK, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Australia without having to leave the country. That sounds like Time Well Spent to me.
