When did my calendar start looking like a game of Jenga?
Ugh. The good news is tomorrow is Friday. Things tend to taper off on Fridays and Friday afternoons are the perfect time to "disappear" and block out some time to work on miscellaneous projects.
So here's what I was thinking.
Tomorrow afternoon: go and get a nice lunch and think about a proposal for Pulse 2011.
The call for papers opens on September 22nd, so now is the perfect time to get ready.
We are looking for speakers, like you, to talk about your experiences in implementing service management.
Jennifer Dennis wrote an excellent post with all the details ("Pulse 2011 Call for Speakers - Opens 9/22 @ ibm.com/pulse!") on the Pulse blog.
The best part is that if you are selected to speak, you get a full conference pass ($1,995 value) not to mention the recognition of your peers (whom you'll be interacting with at the event) as well as a great resume builder.
What do you think? Not a bad way to spend a Friday afternoon!
I speak for everyone on the team when I say that we look forward to what you put together.
PS Obviously, you're not just limited to doing this on Friday. Every day is a good day to work on your abstract :-)
