Jeff Weiner Time Blocks Buffer Time - Deepstash

Jeff Weiner Time Blocks Buffer Time

In Jeff Weiner's calendar, there is a host of time slots greyed out, but with no indication of what's going on. The grey sections reflect "buffers,"

He schedule between 90 minutes and two hours of these buffers every day. It's a system, he developed over the several years in response to a schedule that was becoming so jammed with back-to-back meetings.

At first, these buffers felt like indulgences. But over time I realized not only were these breaks important, they were absolutely necessary in order for me to do my job.
