Publisher's Note
Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. publishes a really solid periodical called the LEADING edge. One tip in the magazine, which I had heard in the past but never implemented, is this:  

Never start a meeting on the hour.  Start a meeting at 10:55 a.m., for example, instead of 11:00 a.m.  This way, attendees will know that the stated start time is the start time.  

Do you have any tips like this that you would like to share with AccountingWEB readers?  Please do.  There’s a coffee mug in it for you, too.  E-mail your tips here.
