Too busy to meet

You’re probably not too busy for a 15 minute phone call.

What’s more likely is that you don’t want to have it in the first place.

But why?

With a little effort, you can save everyone some time and create some meaningful dialog around why an opportunity is a poor fit for you or why you’re not open to discussing the opportunity.

Examining the “why” helps me a lot, even if I’m not sharing it with someone.

It’s the thinking that matters.
