breakfast meeting

Had another quick breakfast meeting this morning at 7:30 out here in Pudong. I know I'm a morning person, but I really do wish I could have more morning meetings. I find that they are highly effective for business and personal meetings. Most people are more available at that time (whereas lunches tend to get booked up). The issues of the day are waiting for you at work, but you've still got that morning optimism that you'll be able to tackle them all. The length is generally fixed since you've got to get in to the office (which makes for more focus).

Not enough people here in Shanghai are doing breakfast meetings yet. For one, a lot of places don't open early enough. For two, many Shanghainese just grab street food during their commutes and don't make time for breakfast.

Well, if you want a sure fire way to get on my calendar (and ingratiate yourself with me) offer a breakfast meeting.

What's your sleeping time? Curious.

Well, any time from 11p until 2a, depending on work, etc... I'm usually relatively functional if I can get at least four to five hours of sleep. Get that from my Dad.
