Respect time

Time is very democratic. Everybody gets the same amount every day. You can’t save it and you can’t buy it. So you have to be very careful how to spend it. And the same applies for the people you meet on events.

Remember: if you decide to spend the whole event with one person, then that’s your choice. But always check if the other person is also OK with that. Respecting time not only applies to events, but also to telephone conversations, e-mails, instant messaging and all other moments when you communicate with people.

Especially when you are not at an event, it is a good habit to indicate how much time you want from your contact and to check if he is OK with that.

To your success !
