I learned an important truth early in ministry.
“Whenever you schedule a meeting someone out in public for lunch or coffee, make sure you have some work with you in case they are late.”
I have found this to be an increasingly helpful piece of information.
With a smartphone, you can take this to the next level without the clutter that usually accompanies it. Now I can read the Word, listen to podcasts, check and return emails, etc. all while I wait.
Any similar nuggets you might want to share?
