When clients complain of having too much work to do, and too many distractions getting in the way of them doing the work I ask the following question.
"How much of your activity is spent on pro-active work?"
Many times it is the distractions that turn into big chunks of time that cause the problems and a simple realisation can change this situation.
Does the activity being undertaken help you to get where you are going to?
If the answer is 'no' then let's move on. Find a way to bring the conversation to a close. Find a way to avoid getting dragged into other people's responsibilities.
Find a way to get back onto proactive work.
