Yesterday I got up at 4:30am to catch a 6am flight. I’m really good at this now so I cut it really fine. I made my flight and miraculously my flight arrived in Sydney on time. I got into a cab and after a 45 minute ride I got to my meeting by 9am. Now I’ve been up for four and a half hours and just got to my first meeting.
Seven meetings and 6 coffees later its 4pm and I hop another cab and head back to the airport. My flight was 6:15pm but my airline was nice to me and put me on a 5pm flight. Wonderful – not. At 7:30pm it finally takes off because of storms and we head home. Landing at 9:30pm (not bad for a 1 hour flight), dizzy because of how many times we circled Melbourne before landing. Heading home I take a shower and head to bed. A very successful nineteen – yes 19 hour day.
Today I’m exhausted and have a back log to catch up on. Unfortunately you cannot use unified communications for every meeting.
