Typically, I only have an open calendar for clients or potential clients to set their own meetings on my Calendly app on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I also have weekly standing meetings with my team and other meetings with clients that I personally schedule. Taking the time to go into my calendar and organize my day helps me plan my time. I will book things for me to do that are not meeting-related, but time-sensitive. It helps me stay organized and get things done. I have also been using the “pause” feature in Gmail to hold the emails, so I am not distracted during my workday. It keeps me more productive.
