Does this sound familiar?

Them: When can you talk?

You: I’m free at 2 PM tomorrow and 3 PM Thursday.


2 days later:

Them: Let’s do 3 PM Thursday.

You: Actually, that time slot filled up already.

You: I can do 11 AM tomorrow, can you?

You: No. How about Friday at 9?


UGH. Scheduling a phone call seems pretty simple, but sometimes it takes multiple emails and multiple days. I notice myself spending time on this and being distracted by it.

I looked into three types of calendar software and picked one. Read about which one I chose—and where I’m putting the links to my calendar—in my latest blog post:
