Polar Bear had not been managing her time well at all. Meetings were piling up, her customers were always waiting to hear back from her and there was a mountain of paperwork on her desk. She wanted to do everything for everyone and soon realized this was not the way to be productive. As much as she hated to, Polar Bear took a step back. She began to only take the most important meetings and leave the paperwork to her assistants. Placing barriers between her and the small stuff allowed her to play it cool and get more work done.
