Comment Of The Day
I recieved the following comment to my Backlog Blues post.
What a load of B.S.! If you are too busy to get back to people then
that means you have either bitten off more than you can chew, are bad
at organizing, or are simply too accessible? I mean do you really need
4 different voicemails? Ever heard of call forwarding? Do you really
need ten email accounts? How about simply cutting back to a more
manageable amount on information consumption!?!?
It is when we become "too important" that we start missing out on good opportunities.

James, I have two email accounts, one for Flatiron and one for Union Square Ventures that are forwarded, and two voice mails, one for my office and one for my cell that are not. I may have bitten off too much (and always have) but I will never be "too accessible". That notion is unacceptable to me
UPDATE: I have changed the format of this post, and all future comment of the day posts due to some great feedback from John Brothers. Thanks John!
