The critical role of a scheduler

My scheduler is fabulous. So as I read Tony Blair’s new book, I thought the following quote just about sums it up:

“Kate Garvey was the gatekeeper, the custodian of the diary. There is a whole PhD thesis to be written by some smart political student about the importance of scheduling….to call it being ‘in charge of the diary’ is like calling Lennon and McCartney people who ‘wrote songs’.”
Tony Blair, My Journey, p. 22
